No new leads in search for escaped inmate
CLINTON - Deputies continue to search for an inmate who officials say walked away from his work-release job Monday.
Chief Deputy Cliff Hurst with the East Feliciana Sheriff's Office says they have no leads on 21-year-old Glen Carroll III.
Hurst said deputies believe someone picked up Carroll from his job at the Paul Davis Lumber Co. on La. Highway 16 about noon Monday.
Hurst said Carroll transferred to the East Feliciana Parish Jail last week from the Livingston Parish Jail.
The East Feliciana Sheriff's Office is partnering with other local law enforcement agencies including the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office, Baton Rouge Police Department and the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office to search surrounding parishes.
Before his escape, Hurst says Carroll was eligible for release from state custody in January 2014.
