Around 12:14 a.m. today, 4 men were able to overpower 2 female corrections officers with some type of homemade weapon at the Gallia County Jail. Subsequently the 4 inmates forced open a secured door and escaped.
The inmates are: Brynn K. Martin, 40, Christopher M. Clemente, 24, Troy R. McDaniel Jr., 30, and Lawrence R. Lee III, 29, they are considered extremely dangerous.
What’s more is that the inmates had a little help once outside of the jail. They stole an employee’s car then dumped it roughly a block away where someone had been waiting to pick them up.
That vehicle was later discarded in Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania State Police tweeted that they have reason to believe that Christopher Clemente is in the area of the Westmoreland Mall in Greensburg.
Lawrence R Lee was being held on a charge of identity fraud- Chistopher M Clemente on a charge of aiding and abetting another in committing a crime- and Byrnn K Martin on charges of failure to appear and escape. It’s unclear what charge Troy R McDaniel was being held on. Sept. 3 Brynn Martin and Jesse Partlow, 30, were in a jail transport vehicle when they escaped, they were caught the next day after a standoff with law enforcement.
It’s rumored that the jail is and has been somewhat short staffed which helped in allowing the inmates to escape.
The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a reward of $2,500 per inmate for information leading to their apprehension.
