RIDGEVILLE, SC (WSPA) – The search continues Thursday in Dorchester County for an inmate – serving a life sentence – who escaped from a maximum security prison.
Jimmy Causey, 46, escaped from Lieber Correctional Institute in Ridgeville around 1:55 p.m. Wednesday. He was being held there for a kidnapping conviction and is serving a life sentence.
The South Carolina Department of Corrections says it’s the second time Causey has escaped from one of their facilities. We’re told Causey was on the road for three days when he got away from a prison in Columbia in 2005.
Details about how he got out of the prison are being investigated by the agency. A reward is being offered for information that leads to his capture. The reward amount has not been released.
Causey is 6’2″ and weighs 177 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes.
If you see him, you’re told not to approach him, but call 911 immediately. Anyone with information on where Causey can be found can call (877)-349-2130 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
