The local police are now hunting down five inmates with “violent criminal histories” — including two accused murderers who escaped from a Georgia jail on Friday night.
In the initial investigation conducted by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the escaped prisoners were still on the lam late Saturday after busting out of Pulaski County Jail.
The escapees identified as Tyree Williams, 33, Lewis Evans, 22, Tyres Jackson, 27, Brandon Pooler, 24, and Dennis Penix, 28 were reportedly last seen in a stolen 2015 Kia Sedona minivan.
Court records have shown that Williams and Penix are facing murder cases.
Penix was charged for allegedly killing two men in a “drug deal gone bad.”
Williams for his part was indicted for shooting someone during a July 2020 home invasion.
For the speedy arrest of the prisoners, the GBI already released mugshots of all five inmates and warned the public to call 911 and stay away from the men if anybody encountered them.
