Two inmates escaped from Sandusky County Jail Monday afternoon,
taking advantage of an unlocked emergency door.
According to Sandusky County Sheriff Chris Hilton, Mickley Hardy and Jordan Chapman escaped together.
“There was a mechanical failure in one of our doors in our outdoor [recreation] area, and it was just one of those things that they took advantage of a bad situation,” Hilton told The Blade
. “It was not a coordinated event. It was a crime of opportunity.”
This isn't the first time an inmate has escaped through that door. Last year, Nicholas Maldonado pulled the same stunt, but was caught an hour later. Hardy and Chapman are still on the loose, but are believed to be in Sandusky County.
There is a $1000 reward for anyone with information that leads to the capture of the recent escapees. Call the Sandusky County Dispatch Center at 419-332-6433 with any related information.
