ESCAPEE FROM WAYNE COUNTY JAIL MAY BE IN PULASKI COUNTY

 

According to Wayne County Sheriff Tim Catron, Albert L. Young Jr. of Monticello, Ky., an inmate at the Wayne County Detention Center has escaped from that facility. Young was serving a 5-year sentence at the Detention Center as a State prisoner on the charge of assault-3rd degree-on Police Officer or Probation Officer.


On April 6, 2020 at 8:30 PM, Alvin Parmley a guard at the Detention Center was conducting an outside perimeter check when he noticed the escapee partially through a security fence that goes around a recreation area. Clamps that held the security fence in place had been loosened up enough so Young could get through. Before Parmley could get to Young he was able to take off running east across a field towards Kentucky Highway 90. Parmley was unable to catch up with Young on foot.

At 8:32 PM Monticello Wayne County 911 Dispatch Center was notified by the Detention Center of the escape. Multiple units from the Wayne County Sheriff’s, Monticello Police Department along with guards from the Detention Center searched a large area in the north eastern side of Monticello and other locations in Wayne County throughout the night including several buildings and residences. The search failed to produce Young.

The search is continuing for Young by multiple units from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, Monticello Police Department and the Kentucky State Police. An arrested warrant has been issued by the Kentucky Department of Corrections for committing the crime of escaping custody.

Young is 20 years old, 6 feet tall, weighing 190 pounds, brown hair, hazel eyes with multiple tattoos on his right and left forearms and on his left hand.

Young has ties to Pulaski County and the Lexington areas. Anyone with information on where Young may be is asked to call the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office at 606-348-5416, Monticello Wayne County 911 Dispatch Center at 606-348-9111 or the Kentucky State Police at 606-878-6622.
