Georgia deputies find car used in jail escape; 4 inmates remain on the run

The vehicle used in a jailbreak in Georgia last week has been found, though the four inmates who escaped remain on the run, authorities said Friday.

The blue Dodge Challenger was recovered in the parking lot of the Biomat USA at 630 North Avenue in Macon after investigators followed up on leads, the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office said, without elaborating.

Four inmates are believed to have used the vehicle to drive off from the Bibb County Detention Center around 3 a.m. on Monday after climbing out through a damaged day room window and cutting through a fence, according to investigators. 

The four inmates are 52-year-old Joey Fournier, 29-year-old Chavis Stokes, 24-year-old Marc K. Anderson and 37-year-old Johnifer Barnwell, the sheriff’s office said. The men were being detained on charges ranging from murder to drug trafficking.

Authorities asked anyone with information about the whereabouts of the inmates or the vehicle to contact the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500 or Macon Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.
