Jailers On Administrative Leave

Sharp County Jail

While the search continues for 31-year old Randall Paul Sledge, of Conway, a missing inmate, two jailers are off the job as investigators look into how three prisoners escaped custody from the Sharp County Jail.

Sheriff Mark Counts says the men somehow unscrewed the dead-bolt from the jail door and then pulled a fence up outside the door to escape.

The trio was discovered missing during routine checks Wednesday morning.

Two of the three, 25-year old Christopher John Frey, of Horseshoe Bend, and 18-year old Robert Lynn Pollard, of Evening Shade, were caught late Wednesday afternoon.

Sheriff Counts says the jailers are on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
