Escaped SC Inmate Captured In Texas

SC inmate captured after 2nd prison escape Jimmy Causey

Authorities said a cell phone and possibly a drone were also used in the escape and that two officers, one per wing, were stationed inside Causey's dorm at the time.

The 46-year-old prison escapee apparently used wire cutters to slice through four separate fences-wire cutters which seem to have been dropped into his SC maximum-security prison by drone.

In 2010, a veteran SC correctional officer survived being shot six times at his home after officials say an inmate planned the shooting and used an illegal cellphone to coordinate with the shooter.

Multiple sources are reporting that a SC prison officials suspect Jimmy Causey, a prisoner at the Lieber Correctional Institution, may have used a drone to fly in tools that enabled him to break out of the institution.

Causey was sentenced to life behind bars 13 years ago for holding a lawyer at gunpoint. He and another inmate escaped Broad River Correctional Institution in Columbia in 2005 by hiding in a trash truck.

South Carolina Officials were still investigating the incident, which included Causey placing a dummy in his bed to fool prison guards. After receiving word of his escape, officials verified at around 2 p.m. on July 5 that he was missing.

Jimmy Causey's elaborate escape also included cellphones smuggled into the prison, guns and $47,000 in cash.

Half of Americans Trust CNN More Than Trump
The US president has refuted these allegations and labeled the media involved in these speculations as " fake news ". Similarly, a 60 percent majority say that they trust USA courts while 37 percent said that they do not.

"Everyone who assisted him - we intend on bringing them to justice as well", State Law Enforcement Division Chief Mark Keel said.

Stirling wouldn't give details about where Causey would be held this time, except to say it will be 'a high, high security unit'. Drones and cell phones have been all over the news lately when it comes to Palmetto prisons.

Causey, 46, escaped this week from Lieber Correctional Institution, about 90 miles (149 km) southeast of Columbia.

Causey has now escaped from prison twice in the last 12 years.

Causey had been in solitary confinement at the prison near the town of Ridgeville, but had been moved to a general population wing that is overseen by two corrections officers, Stirling said.

Gov. Henry McMaster echoed Stirling in calling for the Federal Communications Commission to allow for the jamming of cellphone signals at state prisons. "They are physically incarcerated, but they are no longer virtually incarcerated", Mr. Stirling said.
