Police offering reward for escaped inmate

The Meriwether County sheriff's office and U.S. Marshals are now offering a $3,000 reward for information leading to the capture of an escaped inmate.

Eugene Mitchell broke out of the county jail Tuesday night along with another inmate.

That other inmate, Travion Hall, has been recaptured.

Sheriff Chuck Smith says the men managed to escape through a utility closet.

If you have any information about Mitchell's whereabouts you are asked to call police.
