Friday afternoon, the sheriff’s office announced on its Facebook page that the United States Marshals offered a $5,000 reward plus for information leading to the capture of each individual inmate. The total reward for information leading to the capture of all three suspects totals a hefty $22,500.

Authorities ask

Anyone with information regarding the inmates’ whereabouts is to call 1-800-TBI-FIND or 911 immediately, and are encouraged to avoid approaching them because they are obviously dangerous. Keep your eyes open Alabama, and get these guys back where they belong.
