Another woman has been charged with aiding one of the jail escapees.

28 year old Alesha Rushell Scott of Gin Alley, Alexandria was arrested on Friday, November 24 at her home in Alexandria and charged with "permitting or facilitating an escape". Scott’s bond is $20,000 and her court date is December 7.

Sheriff Patrick Ray said her charges stem from an investigation into the escape of Bryon Ray Gibbs.

Three other women were arrested last week in separate incidents of aiding jail escapees Bryon Gibbs and Daniel Hamilton who broke out of the DeKalb County Jail Annex Tuesday night along with Jack Mullican, Jr.

40 year old Margaret Ann Taylor of Store Road, Rock Island; 40 year old Miranda Nicole Johnson of Joe Blanton Road, Woodbury; and 29 year old Jessica Anne Jenkins of Bright Hill Road, Smithville are each charged in separate cases of “permitting or facilitating an escape”.

Although accused of the same offense, Sheriff Ray said these women are charged individually for separate contacts with both escapees. Bond for both Johnson and Jenkins is $10,000 each. Taylor’s bond is $5,000. All will make a court appearance on December 7.

Sheriff Ray said as the investigation continues more arrests are expected.
