Manhunt Underway For Escaped Inmate
Saturday Aug 05, 2017 11:05am
Paulding County, Ohio

A manhunt is currently underway for an inmate who overpowered an officer and escaped from a midday transport on Friday in Ohio. The Paulding County Sheriff Jason Landers says that 32-year old Brandon Powell forced a Transport Officer to crash his vehicle during a trip from the Northwest Ohio Psychiatric Hospital in Toledo to the Paulding County Jail. Powell scaled a row of seats while handcuffed and put the transport officer in a headlock. As a result of the struggle, the officer crashed the vehicle, after which Powell stole the officer's gun, and used the officer’s handcuff key to get free. Powell then made the officer handcuff himself, and then ran away near the intersection of Roads 133 and 176.

The sheriff says that Powell should be considered armed and very dangerous as he has a 40-caliber pistol with 30 total rounds of ammunition.

Powell was jailed on a felony rape charge on July 8th.
