Inmate Breaks out of Jail Through Ventilation Duct

Friday, 26 Dec 2014 01:22 PM

Authorities say a Northern California inmate broke out of jail by climbing up a ventilation duct and punching out a window.

The Monterey County Herald reports 23-year-old Freddy Swanson made the escape Christmas Day and remains at large. Authorities say he's armed and dangerous.

Police say Swanson scaled a ventilation duct at a Monterey County jail, broke a small window and climbed onto the roof. He then jumped to escape the medium-security facility.

Swanson was arrested Dec. 19 at a motel in the county after a hit-and-run car crash and high-speed chase. He later was charged with multiple narcotics and firearms violations. Swanson was awaiting sentencing when he escaped.

A statewide "be on the lookout" bulletin has been issued for his arrest and return to custody.
