Second Inmate Escapes Gregg County Jail

For the second time in less than a week, an inmate from the Gregg County Jail bolts and runs from jailers , leading officers on a chase. Nineteen year old Detric D. Sheffield was returning to the jail from a doctor's visit when he escaped from custody last night. Longview police dogs were called in to pick up his trail around fifteen minutes before his capture.

He was caught just before 10:00 last night near Judson Road. Sheffield was originally arrested August 12th for burglary of a habitation.

Saturday, 22-year-old Michael Afotey escaped police custody during booking.  He is still on the loose.
