Two ‘Dangerous’ Inmates On The Run After Daring Illinois County Jail Break
Two inmates broke out of jail on Saturday and are still being hunted by Illinois State Police and other local agencies.
According to Fox 2, Zachery Shock, 24, and Johnny Tipton, 61, broke out of the White County jail through a concrete wall using a pipe. Shock and Tipton along with another inmate, who was captured later, have been on the run for over two days.
White County is located five hours southeast of Rockford, just minutes from the Indiana border.
The White County Sheriff's office tells MSN the two escaped inmates "were spotted Sunday night near the intersection of Illinois Route 1 and Illinois 141, about 20 miles from the jail" and are considered dangerous.
Shock "was in jail for murder and aggravated battery with firearm charges" and "Tipton was being held on charges of theft and possession of stolen property." per Oxygen.
