CONROE, Texas (AP) - An inmate at a Houston-area jail has escaped and investigators believe the bank robbery suspect went over a wall.
The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office says 40-year-old Britt Chadvurn Privatte of Sugar Land was unaccounted for during a check Sunday afternoon. Lt. Dan Norris says Privatte was last seen in the recreation yard of the jail in Conroe.
Investigators believe Privatte scaled a wall inside the recreation yard and broke through the upper fencing to the roof.
Privatte was among three people arrested following a January bank robbery in the Kingwood area. He was being held on charges of escape, aggravated robbery and burglary. He'll also face an escape charge.
Further details on the escape weren't immediately released.
