Police capture 1 of 5 inmates who escaped from Ohio prison

One of five inmates who escaped from a correctional facility in Ohio earlier this week has been recaptured, according to news reports.

Jaden Miller, 23, was back in custody Thursday at the Stark County Jail, according to WOIO 19 News in Cleveland.

Reports say Miller was serving time for possession of weapons under a disability. 

The other four escapees were still at large as of 12:30 p.m. Thursday. 

They are: 

  • Joshua Bingham, 36, aggravated possession of drugs 
  • Vincent Blanc, 24, violation of a protection order and menacing 
  • Jason Drake, 39, burglary 
  • Michael Fisher, 29, aggravated possession of drugs 

The escape happened between 8:45 p.m. Monday and 10 a.m. Tuesday, according to reports. 

Police said the five broke through a first-floor window of the Stark County Regional Community Correction Center in Louisville, Ohio, just east of Canton. 

The inmates “used padlocks attached to their belts or padlocks in their socks to damage a window to facilitate their escape,” according to WOIO.

Reports say the prison houses lower-level convicts who are mostly nonviolent offenders. 

Authorities still cautioned the public not to approach the inmates if encountered on the street.
