Authorities Searching For Inmate Who Escaped Kentucky Jail

Authorities say they are looking for an inmate who escaped from a Kentucky jail on Tuesday through a hole in a fourthfloor window.

LOUISVILLE, Ky.: Authorities say they are looking for an inmate who escaped from a Kentucky jail on Tuesday through a hole in a fourth-floor window.

Officials think inmate Anthony Martinez, 30, climbed through the window and then used a hose draped along the building to lower himself to the ground, Louisville Metro Corrections Assistant Director Steve Durham told news outlets.

The FBI in Louisville tweeted that Martinez is wanted on both state and federal warrants and is considered dangerous. News outlets report he was arrested in February on robbery charges involving multiple banks.

Durham said an investigation into the escape was underway.

Metro Corrections Director Dwayne Clark has ordered an internal investigation into the circumstances that contributed to Inmate Martinezs unauthorized departure,” he said in a statement.
