Pearl River County Inmate On The Loose

A Pearl River County jail inmate remains on the run after escaping in a stolen patrol car Tuesday night.

Sheriff's officials say Kenny Patterson and a fellow trusty took a patrol car. The two mechanics were outside of the jail late Tuesday because rainy weather delayed vehicle repairs.

Deputies were alerted just before 9 p.m. when someone called 911 to report that a shreriff's car had been involved in a wreck. Jeffrey Comforter turned himself in.

Kenny Patterson is still on the loose. Paterson is a white male, 29 years old, 6 feet tall, weighing 200 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes.

Patterson was serving time for probation violation on a third DUI offense. Pearl River County Sheriff Joe Stuart says Patterson is not considered dangerous.

If you have any information as to Patteron's whereabouts, call the Pearl River County Sheriff's Department at (601) 795-4716.
