A man has been arrested for his involvement in two inmates escaping from the Lowndes County Jail on Tuesday night.
Steven Jennings was taken into custody and charged with conspiracy to commit a crime one day after the escape was reported.
According to officials, 42-year-old Terry Leshaun Brooks escaped from the jail with 36-year-old Phillip Shane House around 8:00 p.m.
The two reportedly cut out a portion of a window and crawled through the prison’s ventilation system before making it over the perimeter fence. Both then went under a second fence, with House being captured by officers moments later.
Brooks was serving time for charges connected to the murder of 20-year-old Frank Edwards on 12th Avenue South in Columbus in December 2020.
He was also arrested by U.S. Marshals in St. Louis, Mo. one year ago after jumping out of a two-story building while carrying cocaine and a gun.
Officials are warning that Brooks is still on the run and are asking the public to call 911 if they have any information on his whereabouts.
