An inmate jailed in Adams County has escaped.
The Adams County Sheriff’s Office reports 27-year-old Jordan Latta escaped Sunday evening during a transfer from one holding area to another.
Latta took advantage of the fact that his escort had to use a public elevator, because the secure elevator normally used for inmate transfers was out of service. Latta fled from two staff members during the transfer, running down a hallway and out of the courthouse in Hastings.
Latta was being held on a theft charge.
A search is underway.
