Law enforcement agencies across the state of Alabama are engaged in a manhunt for an Inmate that they say escaped from the Morgan County Jail.
Authorities claim 29-year-old Alexis Jaime Hernandez was working as an inmate laundry worker inside of the detention facility, when he changed into clothing that outside prison workers wear, often referred to as a "trustee".
Using his clever disguise, Hernandez made his way out of the premises, where he would later flee from the work detail he was never supposed to be a part of.
Hernandez was incarcerated for a probation violation for first-degree possession of marijuana charges, where he was scheduled to be released in twelve months, according to<a href="http://whnt.com/2018/02/19/man-escapes-form-morgan-county-detention-center/"> WHNT 19 News</a>.
Alabama has some of the nation's toughest drug laws, especially for marijuana, but with Hernandez choosing to flee a correctional facility he'll now be charged with additional felonies once he's captured, according to Chief Deputy Mike Corley.
Anyone with any information surrounding the suspect or may have knowledge as to his whereabouts are asked to contact the Morgan County Sheriff's Office at 256-301-1174.
