Prisoner escapes from sheriff's deputies

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        HILLSBORO — Sheriff's deputies late Wednesday were searching for a prisoner who escaped from the sheriff's department offices.

        Thomas Rogg, 27, escaped from an interview room about 2 p.m. by going out a window and sliding down a pole, the sheriff's department said. The escapee, who was wearing green jail clothing, may have stolen a 1986 white Toyota shortly after he fled.

        The escapee, who was in jail on burglary and grand theft charges, has family in Brown and Hamilton counties.

        The escapee is described as a white male, 5-foot-7, 155 pounds, with black hair and blue eyes, and he has numerous tattoos on his back, chest and arms.

        He was wearing a Hard Rock Cafe T-shirt under his jail shirt and may have been barefoot.
