Jones also posted that a stolen Hinds County maintenance truck was also found in Spring Valley and recovered on Sunday.

Jones says it is unconfirmed if Raynes traveled to Texas alone.



Raynes is one of four inmates that escaped from the Raymond Detention Facility on Sunday.

Another one of the inmates, Dylan Arrington, was confirmed Wednesday to have died in a house fire following a standoff with authorities in Leake County.

Raynes, along with two others that escaped, are still on the loose.
