The sheriff’s department said the escape could add years onto Harrison and Myrick’s prison sentences. Both are now charged with felony escape. Their bonds were set at $50,000 for the new charges.
The department thanked all citizens who kept an eye out for the suspects while they were on the run. Thanks were also sent to the Forrest County Sheriff's Department, Mississippi Highway Patrol, Jones County Fire Council and EmServ for assisting with the search.
