Mandy Cavanaugh and Sean Michael Dickson are pictured in these images released by the Garland County sheriff's office.

A woman who had been taken into custody Tuesday in contempt of court slipped out of her handcuffs and escaped as authorities moved her to jail, the Garland County sheriff's office said.

Mandy Rose Cavanaugh, 25, jumped into the bed of a pickup that authorities say was driven by her husband, 32-year-old Sean Michael Dickson. The pickup, which had a license plate of 334 SFC, sped from the scene and neither Cavanaugh nor Dickson has been located.

It happened about 4 p.m. as bailiffs with the court were escorting inmates to the Garland County jail, Deputy Scott Hinojosa said in a statement.

"Our investigators are working the case and are following up on leads at this time," Hinojosa said, asking that anyone with information on Cavanaugh or Dickson call (501) 622-3674.

It's not the first time in recent memory that an inmate or suspect has escaped custody in Garland County. In December, inmate Lavelle Taylor escaped while being escorted from the hospital back to the jail before being recaptured a few days later.

And in August 2013, inmate Derrick Estelle was arrested in Florida after climbing through the window in a visitation area of the Garland County jail and then running out of the facility to a waiting getaway car.

That escape, which was captured on surveillance video, made headlines around the world.

Better this than the "shoot first and ask questions later" kind of cop. Maybe I'll move there.
