City worker, woman arrested for aiding and abetting Muscogee Co. prisoner

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A city worker and a woman were arrested Thursday for allegedly aiding and abetting a Muscogee County prisoner.

According to Muscogee County Prison Warden Dwight Hamrick, Edward Waldrop picked up a prisoner who was working detail and took him to meet his girlfriend Ashley Brummett on Hunter Road, near Floyd Road.

A concerned citizen said she saw Brummett's vehicle parked at the end of the street and observed the inmate getting out the service worker's vehicle and into the car with his girlfriend of Macon, GA.

Police were called to the location, where they arrested Brummett and took the prisoner back to jail. The inmate, Michael Crook, was charged with escape.

Police found a loaded 38-caliber handgun, bolt cutters, money and clothing inside the vehicle.

Waldrop was later arrested after Brummett's number was found on his cell phone.

Both Brummett and Waldrop have been charged with aiding and abetting. They were arraigned in Recorder's Court Friday morning where their bail was set at $5,000 each.

Waldrop worked in the Environmental Services Department with the Columbus Consolidated Government. 

The case has been bound over to Superior Court.
