In­mates es­cape to ‘smoke weed,’ visit girl­friends, sher­iff says


Two men who briefly es­caped the Choctaw County jail Wed­nes­day to visit their girl­friends and “smoke weed” could be fac­ing ad­di­tional charges for at­tend­ing to their love lives, Sher­iff Terry Park said.

Park said Ra­keem Len­nox and Har­ley David­son waited for jail staff to leave the area near their room about 10:30 p.m. Wed­nes­day and went into the book­ing room to steal a door key to the laun­dry room. From there, the two trusties fled and went to visit their girl­friends and smoke mar­i­juana be­fore walk­ing back to the jail just af­ter mid­night.

“(They) weren’t quite trusties to be trusted,” Park said of the two men, who could now be fac­ing charges for their es­cape.

Both men were in jail for drug pos­ses­sion, he said.
