Authorities in California are on the lookout for six male inmates who escaped a county jail Sunday after scaling down its walls with a homemade rope, police said.
The inmates, all aged between 19 and 22 years old, were first reported missing from their cells just before midnight, the Merced County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. Investigators said the men gained access to the roof of the facility where they used a “homemade rope to scale down the side of the jail,” the sheriff’s office said.
The six missing inmates are: Jorge Barron, 20; Gabriel Francis Coronado, 19; Manuel Allen Leon, 21; Andres Nunez Rodriguez Jr., 21; Fabian Cruz Roman, 22; and Edgar Eduardo Venture, 22.
A task force was formed to track down the fugitives. No other details were immediately available.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
