The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office and Baton Rouge police spent several hours searching for an escaped 15-yr-old.
He was arrested by EBRSO for simple burglary of a vehicle on Dec. 29th.
A deputy transported the suspect to BRPD’s third district for processing. After he finished processing, the deputy escorted the suspect back to his unit to transport him to the juvenile detention center.
Prior to securing the suspect inside his unit, the suspect jerked away from the deputy and fled on foot.
BRPD’s SWAT, K-9 and drone divisions assisted in the search and set up a perimeter but were all unsuccessful in recapturing the juvenile.
Because he is a juvenile, his name and mugshot cannot be released.
Anyone with information on the escaped inmates whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 344-STOP.
