Saturday Morning an inmate from the Schoolcraft County Jail escaped form the facility on foot. Thanks to the quick action of deputies, the City of Manistique Public Safety Officers, and the Michigan State Police, the suspect was apprehended and returned to the jail.
The suspect was away from the facility for less than one hour and had attempted to hide at a few known residences within the City of Manistique. The inmate was originally lodged at the facility on a felony charge. The investigation is currently ongoing, and potential charges may be sought for other outside individuals. There was no danger to the public from this incident and the inmate is secured back inside the jail.
The name of the inmate is being withheld until the report can be reviewed for further charges.
