HANCOCK COUNTY, Ind. — The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, Greenfield police, and several other agencies including federal are still searching for an inmate who escaped jail custody in Greenfield.
The sheriff’s office said Tyrell Deshawn White was taking trash out to the dumpsters behind the Hancock County Jail around 6:30 p.m. Sunday when he escaped.
Officials said White was being supervised by an officer but was not in any restraints when he ran off.
Officers chased him but lost sight of him as he ran south of the jail. They immediately began using K9’s and drones to find him but were unsuccessful. Deputies say White got inside a vehicle that was waiting nearby for him.
Investigators later found that vehicle after a witness reported it in a parking lot. They were able to locate it in Indianapolis along with 23-year-old Titiana Evans who deputies believe picked up White Sunday evening.
Evan is being charged with assisting a criminal and escape. She’s currently being held at the Hancock County Jail.
White is 5’11’’ and weighs 160 pounds. He has a tattoo of an ornate cross of his chest. He was last seen wearing gray sweatpants and a gray sweatshirt.
Police say Tyrell is known to use the name of his twin brother, Trayvon White.
Tyrell White was arrested last July and was awaiting trial for several charges, including unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon and automobile theft.
White also has an outstanding warrant out of Marion County for armed robbery and theft.
Authorities say he should be considered dangerous. If you see him, call 911 immediately.
