SLIDELL – Authorities are searching the Slidell area for an escaped inmate from West Feliciana Parish after he was spotted this morning.

Sheriff Jack Strain said they received a tip that David St. Germain was seen early Thursday morning by a woman he had been acquainted with for several years.  St. Germain had escaped Sunday from the West Feliciana Parish jail after climbing through a hole in the fence.

U. S. Marshals and St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s deputies began searching the area around 7:00 a.m. with K-9 units, a helicopter and other personnel.

St. Germain had been in jail for violating parole from an earlier theft conviction.
