Four inmates escape from a Georgia prison

The inmates escaped from the facility through a window and then a fence. Their whereabouts remains unknown.

Four inmates at the Bibb County (Georgia) Detention Center escaped from prison early Monday morning.

According to information transmitted by the authorities, the prisoners escaped around 3:00 am (local time) through a broken window and managed to escape through a fence that was cut. A blue Dodge Challenger was waiting for them near the prison facility.

The inmates remain missing, as confirmed by county sheriff David Davis in a press conference. It is also unknown if the prisoners are still together or separated.

Due to this, the authorities provided images and personal information of each of them to alert residents near the prison.

The four escaped inmates are Joey Fournier, 52 years old and convicted of murder; Mark Kerry Anderson, 24 years old and convicted of aggravated assault; Johnifer Dernard Barnwell, 37 years old and detained by the United States Marshals; and Chavis Demaryo Stokes, 29 years old and convicted of drug trafficking and possession of a firearm.

In addition to having provided personal information about the prisoners, the sheriff's office provided a telephone number so that citizens can contact the authorities if they see any of the escapees. The county school district limited outdoor activities during the day.
