The search continues for an escaped inmate. Thirty-year-old Andrew Walker of Pierron, Illinois broke out of the Bond County Jail in Greenville Friday. He apparently crawled through a vent leading to an outer room to make his escape. Walker was being held on drug charges at the time.
He is accused of production of methamphetamine. Walker is a white male, 6′ tall, about 170 pounds with short brown hair. He was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and white shorts. Walker escaped through a vent that leads to an outer room. This is the second escape in the past two years. In March of 2012, three inmates escaped after overpowering a corrections officer when the officer unlocked a cell door to take items into the cell. They were all eventually caught and returned to prison.
