Inmate attempts to flee from transport van, transported to hospital

Updated:
VERNON COUNTY, MISSOURI -

An inmate was transported to the Nevada City Hospital after what Sheriff’s Officials are calling an attempted escape from their transport van Friday afternoon. According to a press release, A transportation officer with the Vernon County Jail notified dispatch that he needed priority assistance at Barret and Austin in Nevada. The transport van was returning from Greene County with inmates and had stopped at the stop light. According to officials, the van began to move when the light turned green and the door was opened and an inmate attempted to flee from the van. Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher said inmates being transported have shackles on their feet and their hands are cuffed to a belly chain limiting their movement. “I don’t think he took into account that he could not jump because his feet were shackled together so it sounds like from witnesses that he more of fell out of the van and landed in the road when he got the door open” said Mosher. The inmate was transported to the hospital at his request but then returned to the Vernon County Jail hours later with minor scrapes.

The Sheriff said the door was secured and latched when it left the Greene County Jail in Springfield and there had been no issues until it was opened right before entering the Vernon County Jail in Nevada. “It appears the lock had been manipulated allowing the door to be opened from the inside” said Mosher. The Sheriff said his office would be applying for charges of attempted escape from custody. No names have been released until the issuance of a warrant.
