HOT SPRINGS, AR - A search continues for an inmate who escaped from a deputy with the Garland County Sheriff's Office (GCSO) on Thursday night.
It happened around 10:00 while the man was being taken back to the GCSO after receiving medical treatment at Mercy Hospital.
The escaped inmate is identified as Lavelle Taylor, 41 (see photo). He is 5’10” tall and weighs about 250 pounds.
The GCSO says Taylor was handcuffed and wearing an orange prisoner jumpsuit.
Deputies say they have no reason to believe that Taylor is a threat to anyone. He was in custody for Theft By Receiving, and two counts of failure to appear in Garland County Circuit Court.
If anyone has any information on Taylor's whereabouts of Taylor, they're asked to call 911 or the GCSO's anonymous tip line at (501) 622-3674.
