A man escaped from Fentress County Jail Monday night, said Fentress County Sheriff Tony Choate.

Choate said Josh Carroll, 35, was in the yard for a drug sweep of the jail and slipped over the fence.

Choate says security is stretched due to overcrowding.

Carroll is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 190 pounds. He had been in jail since last week, accused of a series of home break-ins, Crossville News First reported.

If you have any information about his whereabouts, please contact police.
