Escaped Neshoba County inmate re-captured in New York


An escaped inmate from the Neshoba County jail has been re-captured more than a thousand miles from home.

Terry Harrington was recently taken into custody in New York. He got away from a jail employee on Oct. 28.

Herrington told deputies “he swallowed a razor blade” and needed to go to the hospital. Herrington made a run for it on his way to the hospital. Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell says they aren’t sure how Harrington broke free.

“The inmate was shackled- his feet and hands were shackled. Somehow he managed to unlock the shackles. And once they arrived at the Neshoba County Hospital, the jailer opened the van door and that’s when the suspect came out on to the jailer,” says Sheriff Waddell.

Sheriff Waddell says Harrington is now in custody in Rochester, New York. Harrington will return to Neshoba County where he now faces additional charges with felony escape. Harrington was originally in Neshoba County’s custody awaiting trial for felony charge of aggravated assault.

The US Marshal’s Service assisted in capturing Terry Harrington in Rochester, New York. Harrington was taken to the hospital October 28th after he claimed to have swallowed a razor blade. That’s where he got away.
