The same trio of teenagers who escaped from a Jackson detention center last year are once again on the run.

Hinds County Sheriff Tyree Jones posted on social media Monday at 1:49 a.m. that Jashon Jones, 15, Robert Earl Smith, 16, and Tayshon Holmes, 17, had broken out of the Henley-Young-Patton Juvenile Justice Center. The three teens stole a blue 2007 Jeep Liberty from the parking lot, which was recovered on Wilson Street in Jackson.

In a follow-up post, Jones revealed that three other detainees were transported to a local hospital for injuries sustained during the disturbance and before the escapes. Their injuries are considered non-life threatening.

Since then, the escapees are believed to have stolen two vehicles, shooting an Adams County woman in the neck during the process. They were last seen in southwest Mississippi driving a 2015 Gold Ford Fusion with a tag number of ADC8276.

In June 2023, the trio of Smith, Holmes, and Jones escaped from the same detention center and were captured over the next eight days. This time around, Jones said all three should be considered armed and dangerous as a gun is believed to have been in the vehicle they stole.

Anyone with information regarding their whereabouts is asked to call (601)352-1521.
