Jennings authorities looking for inmate who escaped at the courthouse

VERNON, Ind. (AP) — Authorities are searching for a southern Indiana jail inmate who has escaped from custody.

They say Jennings County Jail inmate Kimlynn Patton escaped Friday in the area of the Jennings County Courthouse in Vernon.

He’s described as a white male wearing black and white stripes. He’s not believed to be armed but is considered dangerous.

An attorney conference was scheduled Friday afternoon in Jennings Circuit Court in appending case against Patton for escape while violating a home detention order.

Police said individuals should not approach the subject, but if you see him, call 911.
