HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The last remaining inmate mistakenly released from the Hinds County Detention Center is back in custody.

The Hinds County Sheriff's Department said aggravated assault suspect Germarkes Smith was taken back into custody Friday.

House burglary and attempted rape suspect Bruce Antonio Bradley and aggravated assault suspect David Jackson both turned themselves in last week.

Murder suspects Travin Ladarius Bell and Edd Burrell and aggravated assault suspect Roddrick Raheem Jones are also back in custody after being free for five days when the inmates were released by mistake on Dec. 6.

Picou explained it is a case of human error where a jailer did not fully read a court order demanding the release of a number of inmates who hadn't been indicted by Dec. 1.

A seventh inmate, a murder suspect, was also on the list to be released, but he remained behind bars. Picou added the department is looking into how this happened, and he said there would be disciplinary action. He also stated there is no indication any of the inmates committed crimes while free.
