A prisoner facing murder charges was apprehended by Arkansas officials on Monday after he broke out of a nearby facility.

What Happened?

Jatonia Bryant was apprehended by police while strolling around the east side of Pine Bluff, which is roughly 40 miles southeast of Little Rock, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. According to a press release from the sheriff’s office, Bryant was taken into custody without any problems.

On January 22, at around 10:30 a.m. local time, Bryant and Noah Roush were reported missing from the Jefferson County jail, also known as the W.C. “Dub” Brassell Adult Detention Centre. But according to Major Bean, the operations commander of the Sheriff’s Office, security footage revealed that the two had managed to get away that evening.

Authorities said that Bryant, 23, was being held on probable cause for a capital murder allegation related to a shooting that occurred in 2023. Roush, 22, was being detained on probable cause for counts of property theft and residential burglary.

According to the sheriff’s office, the two were absent for 36 hours before anybody noticed. This was due to an inaccurate head count done by jail staff, according to an internal review that was conducted on Monday. Anybody who helped Bryant and Roush might face criminal penalties, according to the sheriff’s office.
