STARK COUNTY, Ohio (WJW) – One of five inmates who had nearly finished his time served in the Stark County Regional Community Corrections Center is now the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force’s fugitive of the week.
Vincent Blanc, 25, is suspected of breaking out of the jail on February 10 and escaping through a window.
“They were in a lot better situation where they were — closer to seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. They were going to be released back into the community and be able live a normal life,” Lt. Dennis Garren told FOX 8 after the escape earlier this month.
Blanc was being held on charges of violating a protection order and menacing.
He will now face felony charges and will likely be held in a state prison when he’s captured.
