U.S. marshals are searching for an armed and dangerous inmate who escaped from an Alabama jail, terrorized multiple people and abandoned one of the victims in metro Atlanta, according to multiple reports.

Authorities found that victim and his vehicle early Tuesday in Douglasville, but there was no sign of fugitive Shane Anthony Vernon, according to WSFA-TV in Montgomery, Ala.


Vernon, who previously escaped during booking on Oct. 29, got away again about 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Coosa County Sheriff Terry Wilson told an Alabama newspaper.

Coosa County is about 65 miles southeast of Birmingham.


After escaping, Vernon broke into a home in Rockford, Ala., where he bound the residents and took their 2016 Ford Fusion, authorities said. He later dumped that vehicle just south of the Coosa-Elmore county line and he ran into woods on foot.

He turned up again Monday in Titus, Ala., where authorities said he tied up another family at gunpoint, stole another vehicle and abandoned it, too.

That same day, Vernon kidnapped a man in Wetumpka, Ala. and took his van, according to officials. The van and the victim were found Tuesday, according to WSFA-TV.


Vernon is 5-foot-9 and weighs about 130 authorities said. He has tattoos on his fist, forearm, neck and shoulder.

Anyone with information about Vernon’s whereabouts is asked to call 911.
