CORINTH – Three inmates escaped overnight Monday from the Alcorn County jail, and two of them are being described as dangerous, a sheriff’s investigator said.
Casanova Damron, 21, of Corinth, Brian Knight, 27, of Jackson, Tenn., and Erik Hansen ,23, of Corinth, apparently slipped out of the building where trustys are housed between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m., said Investigator Jerry Rogers. They cut a hole in the fence surrounding the facility and escaped.
Damron and Knight were arrested by Corinth police on armed robbery charges, while Hansen was being held for a probation violation. Damron and Knight are “considered dangerous because of their charges,” Robers said.
Damron is a black male, 5-feet-9-inches tall, 145 pounds, with short black hair, brown eyes, and teardrop tattoo near one or both eyes.
Knight, also a black male, is 6-feet-1-inch, 185 pounds, with black hair in neck-length dredlocks, and a tattoo on his forearm.. He wears glasses and usually wears a ball cap and a Dupont #24 NASCAR jacket.
Hanson, a white male, is 6-feet-3-inches, 165 pounds, with short – almost shaved – strawberry blond hair and blue eyes.
Anyone with information about the location of these individuals is asked to call the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Office at (662) 286-5521, or Crime Stoppers of Northeast Mississippi at (800) 773-8477.
