Inmate escapes from Choctaw County, Alabama

CHOCTAW, Ala. - Authorities with the Choctaw county Sheriff's Department are searching for an inmate who jumped the fence at the Choctaw County Jail.

27-year-old Lamarion Demetrius Alston, of East St. Louis, Illinois, jumped the front fence at approximately at 7:30 p.m. last night and ran on foot toward Riderwood Drive. Alston is described as a black male, 5 foot 6 inches tall, weighing approximately 150 pounds.

He was last seen in a gray shirt and black pants and has several tattoos on his face.
