Sheriff Says Tennessee Sex Offender Who Was Found Guilty Was Apprehended After He

Putnam County Sheriff Eddie Harris stated in a news release that 42-year-old Jack Janes broke out of the Putnam County Jail by using a door that was inadvertently left unlocked.

“Anytime an inmate escapes, we have made a mistake for that to happen which is unacceptable and is currently being addressed,” Harris said.

Janes’s capture method was not immediately disclosed by the authorities. Authorities stated that Janes was thought to be armed and dangerous during the hunt.

At the time of his escape, Janes, a sex offender and convicted felon, was being held on several counts, including theft, aggravated criminal trespassing, unauthorized possession of a firearm, bond revocation violations, and violations of community supervision.

According to the sheriff’s office, he is facing an additional charge of escape, which carries a potential six-year jail sentence.

Charges were brought against at least two other people for aiding Janes. Those people were not identified right away.

The sheriff stated that more arrests were probably coming as the investigation went on.

There was no other information available at the moment.
