Lafourche inmates escapes by chipping a hole through the ceiling

A Lafourche Parish inmate escaped from custody Tuesday, according to the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office.

Police say inmate Kyron Folse, who was being housed at the Avoyelles Parish Detention Center, escaped Tuesday morning along with another inmate who was later captured. 

Avoyelles Parish Sheriff Doug Anderson said Folse and another inmate, Frank Sneed, were discovered missing from their cell at around 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

The inmates, who were both in jail for armed robbery, had chipped a hole through the ceiling and crawled through a storage area that led to the outside before scaling a fence to escape. Sneed was discovered and arrested in the New Roads area Tuesday.

Folse,19, is still at large and should be considered armed and dangerous. He was previously charged with Armed Robbery with a Firearm as well as other charges including Aggravated Assault, two counts of Simple Battery, and Theft. Investigators believe Folse could be in the Raceland or Houma area.

Anyone with any information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433.
