An inmate has escaped from the Hoke Correctional Institution in Raeford about 3 weeks ago, and now the Edgecombe Co. Sheriffs office is asking people to look out for Culpriest Jones. He was convicted of burglary in Halifax. Before escaping, he was serving 10 years, expecting to be released in 2021.

He’s said to be six feet tall, 185 lbs and walks with a distinct limp. Hoke Correctional is a minimum security facility in Hoke County. The Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office shared his mugshot and this information on its Facebook page.
