“Escape from Alcatr…Err, Henry County Jail! 🏃♂️🚔 Inmates Pull a ‘Shawshank’, Tennessee Cops Turned Treasure Hunters 🔍”
Two ‘tenacious’ inmates, Ronnie Sharp and Joshua Harris, made an audacious escape from the Henry County Jail, Tennessee, by pushing their way through the ceiling and popping open a skylight. Authorities are now leading a frantic manhunt for the pair who are now as free as birds, and might be cruising around in a stolen white Chevy truck. 🏃♂️🚚💨
Caution: This is not advice to try a Hollywood-style jail break.
Onto the high-drama chronicle. Ronnie Sharp, 48, and Joshua Harris, 40, decided they’d had enough of the Henry County Jail’s hospitality. So, these two brains came up with an escape plan that would make Tim Robbins’ character in ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ jealous. Imagine them in their cell, looking at the ceiling and thinking, “That’s our ticket out, bro!” 🤔💡
On the eve of June 26, this dynamic duo, probably pumped with adrenaline, pried through the ceiling in their cell. Next on the agenda? A skylight in the jail roof. Pried it open and voila, welcome to freedom, gentlemen! So, we’re wondering, did these guys study architecture or locksmithing in their spare time? Or maybe, they’re fans of ‘Prison Break’? 🤷♀️
Authorities report that the pair departed the jail in an “unknown direction.” Well, we reckon they didn’t leave a note, “Gone to Disneyland, back never.” 👋🏰 Right? Authorities believe they might have treated themselves to a brand new (stolen) ride, a 2006 white Chevy 3500 four-door truck with a black dump bed. Vroom Vroom! 🚚💨
Let’s put some faces to this real-life action thriller, shall we? Harris, originally from Paris, Tennessee, was in for a parole violation, thanks to a sparkling résumé that includes evading arrest, theft, and burglary. He’s a 5 foot, 9 inches tall, 150-pound man, now on the loose. 👀
Sharp, our second escapologist, was in for a laundry list of pending charges – including kidnapping, aggravated assault, assaulting an officer, evading arrest, theft, and burglary. From Hazel, Kentucky, Sharp is a 5 foot, 11 inches, 160-pound man, also on the run.
The sheriff’s office labeled both men as “dangerous,” (really, what was the first clue? 🕵️♀️). They’ve also advised the public to avoid playing hero if they spot these escapees, but to dial the Henry County Sheriff’s Office or any local law enforcement agency instead.
This daring escape saga unfolded in Paris, about 100 miles west of Nashville. Now, it leaves us wondering: is the security system at the Henry County Jail not-so-escape-proof? Or did these guys just get lucky? 🍀🔐
And while we’re all thrilled (or terrified) by this real-life movie script, here’s a thought: What would you do if you spotted Ronnie Sharp or Joshua Harris on the streets? 🤔 Remember to keep your superhero costumes at bay.
