Inmate escapes from Trenton Prison Sunday night

web posted December 17, 2007 11:47 pm
Updated: 1:45 am
TRENTON – A prisoner from the South Carolina State Prison in Trenton escaped Sunday night just after 11:30 pm. All area law enforcement agencies were alerted to be on the lookout for the escapee.

Johnny Moore, 26, is described as a white male, 5’ 8” tall with black hair and brown eyes weighing 190 pounds. He was last seen wearing a tan SCDC uniform and has tattoos on both arms, one containing a skull.

Moore should be suffering from bleeding wounds received when he went over the back fence surrounding the prison on the side facing Windy Ridge Road.

SLED was notified and bloodhound teams from SLED and the Edgefield and Aiken County Sheriff's Offices were on the scene as well as a helicopter.

Moore is from the Greenville area and may be trying to make his way back to familiar territory.

Edgefield County Sheriff Adell Dobey, Sheriff's Deputies and Investigators, along with officers from Edgefield, Johnston, and Trenton Police Departments responded to the scene. The South Carolina Highway Patrol and the Aiken County Sheriff's Office were also called to help set up a perimeter of the area in an effort to capture the escapee.
