Work Release Inmate Recaptured

March 13, 2019

An Alabama work release inmate was recaptured Wednesday morning in Flomaton, the day after he stole a Sheriff’s Office vehicle that was recovered in Florida.

Herbert Randal Adams, 28, was taken into custody on Selma Street in Pollard, according to Escambia (AL) Sheriff Heath Jackson.

Adams took an Escambia County (AL) Sheriff’s Office pickup truck from a work site on Highway 113 north of Flomaton on Tuesday. The truck was recovered Tuesday afternoon  in the area of Morristown Road and Nelsontown Road in Jay, but a manhunt for Adams turned up empty.

Adams was  jailed on a drug charges and will face additional charges for the escape and vehicle theft.

    Way to go, you mental giant. You managed to escape for less than 20 hours and you’re facing 20 years.

    Although I’m sure someone will take offense to that.
