On Tuesday, July 8, 2014, an inmate escaped from the outdoor exercise yard of the Hitchcock County Jail between 2:45 P.M. and 2:55 P.M. The inmate Jessica M. Cole, age 23, is described as 5'2", 125 pounds, green eyes and long brown hair. It appears that the inmate suffered several cuts upon scaling the exercise wall and razor wire and may seek medical care.
The inmate is not considered to be a danger to the public. Jessica M. Cole had been arrested for failing to appear in the Hitchcock County Court for two counts of Possession of Controlled Substances.
