Convict Escapes Klamath County Jail

By Jim McCoy Thu 4th October NewsescapeKlamath County news
A man has escaped from the Klamath County Jail in Klamath Falls while taking out the garbage. Sheriff Tim Evinger tells The Herald and News newspaper the Thursday morning escape is the first since 1989. Evinger says a helicopter has joined the search of the area around the jail. Evinger says 25-year-old Kenneth Robert Banes was being escorted into the jail yard to dump garbage as part of a work detail when he somehow got under or over a fence. Banes was sentenced to three years in prison for a number of vehicle thefts and burglaries. He was in the county jail for violating his parole. Associated Press
