Marion Co. Inmate on the Run After Escaping Sheriff's Deputy

The Marion Co. Sheriff's Office says Brittany Howell escaped Tuesday while being transported to a work-release program.

 

 

INDIANAPOLIS -- Police are looking for a Marion County inmate who escaped Tuesday while being transported to a work-release program.

Brittany Howell, 29, was arrested in May for driving on a suspended license and operating without a license. She's now charged with escape, a felony, for running away from a Sheriff's deputy.

The deputy was taking Howell to Craine House, a work-release program for women, when she found out the program couldn't accept her. After hearing the news, she ran out of the lobby, still handcuffed.

Howell is still on the run.

The deputy who was in charge of Howell, Robert Anderson, has been placed on administrative leave.

Anyone with information on Howell's location is asked to call the Marion County Sheriff’s Office at 317-327-1700. Anonymous tips can be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS (8477).
