LPD searching for escaped inmate

LAWTON, Ok (KSWO) - LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- The Lawton Police Department needs your help tracking down an inmate.

Jeremy Marshall escaped the city jail yesterday. As a trustee inmate, it's his responsibility to clean up the department. When Marshall went outside to throw trash away, he kept walking.

The department is now considering taking different action when it comes to their trustees.

"The term trustee is obviously for that reason, we trust them to be out, to clean up the station, as long as they are being supervising and checked out by someone. With this incident taking place in the current week, we kinda have to change up our strategy of how we are doing that and checking out our trustees," said Lawton Police Department Public Information Officer, Sgt. Tim Jenkins.

Marshall was serving time for driving without a valid license. He was only facing two weeks of time but now he'll face other charges once he's back in custody.

If you know the whereabouts of Jeremy Marshall, you're asked to call Lawton Police or Crime Stoppers at 580-355-INFO.
