Still no sign of escaped inmate

Posted by wlpo on September 5, 2015

As we enter day three of the search for escaped prisoner Joshua Drinnon, there’s still been no sign of him.

Drinnon escaped from a rest stop on westbound Interstate 80 near Princeton shortly before 5 Wednesday afternoon. The active search for Drinnon in the area was suspended late Thursday afternoon.

Police will handle possible sightings of him on a case-by-case basis. All the alleged sightings of Drinnon have failed to turn up the escapee.

The United States Marshall Service has taken over the case. Drinnon has been able to evade capture despite dogs, officers, airplanes and helicopters all being used to find him.

He was on his way to San Diego from Tennessee facing a charge of aggravated robbery. He’s considered dangerous so if you spot him, don’t approach him, just call the police.
