Inmates Seen Escaping from Washington Jail, 6 Still on the Loose

Yakima Jail Escape

Yakima Jail Escape

A search is underway for six of 12 inmates who escaped from the Yakima County jail on Monday, authorities said.

Eight different prisoners who additionally escaped on the similar time have since been captured and returned to prison via the Yakima County Sheriff's Office.

Officials are asking people in the Yakima area to report any suspicious activity to 911.

Last night in a Yakima County Jail, twelve prisoners escaped after breaking through the exterior fire exit with a table.

"They decided they were going to break down the door and leave", said Yakima County Sheriff Robert Udell in a video posted on Facebook. Despite the governor's shelter-in-place, or stay-at-home order, well, they didn't want to do that. "The actual number of inmates unaccounted for is unknown", said a tweet from the department.

"And we need your help to get these guys back in custody".

The manufacturing PMI is a surprise but the market is likely to shrug it off, similar to the German one earlier today. USA manufacturing and service activity tumbled in March according to a preliminary reading from HIS Markit.

The names of the six captured inmates have now not been launched via government.

It is believed that the inmates will be wearing green shirts and green trousers.

The four other at-large inmates include Fernando Gustavo Casteneda-Sandoval, 31, of Yakima; Hugo Alejandro Amezcua-Hernandez, 28, of Yakima; Andrew Derrick Wofley, 26, of Union Gap; and Neftali Serrano, 27, of Yakima.

Police said that the majority of the escaped inmates were last seen wearing green shirts and dark green trousers - and were possibly barefoot or wearing orange sandals.

Multiple law enforcement agencies are actively searching for the escaped inmates.
