Authorities are searching for three inmates who escaped Saturday afternoon from jail, the Faulkner County Sherriff's office said in a news release.
Chief Deputy Matt Rice said those men are Jonathan Jackson, 24, of Greenbrier; Joel Vermillion, 28, of Mayflower; and Stacy Wilson, 41, of Vilonia.
Certain rules and procedures were not followed that allowed the inmates to escape, the release states.
"I think it was more and less not watching the cameras and not doing the recreational checks," Rice told ArkansasOnline.
The inmates escaped from Faulkner County jail at approximately 2:30 p.m. by pulling back a chain-link fence in the recreational yard and jumping through a barbwire fence to a neighboring business, the release states.
Jackson, Vermillion and Wilson stole a white, four-door 1997 Chevy Lumina and were last seen traveling toward Dave Ward Drive.
All inmates were serving time mainly for drug charges, Rice said. Anyone with information about the inmates are asked to contact the Faulkner County Sherriff's Office at (501) 450-4914.
