Phillip House, also an inmate at the Lowndes County Jail, reportedly tried to escape with Brooks but was captured before he could reach the outer perimeter of the jail.

Steven Jennings was also arrested in the case and is accused of helping with the escape. Authorities have charged him with conspiracy to commit a crime.


Brooks reportedly escaped by cutting out a window and escaping through a ventilation system. He then climbed a perimeter fence and then went under a second fence.

Brooks has escaped previously. U.S. marshals arrested him in St. Louis last year after he jumped from a second-story window with a gun and cocaine.
