Search continues for escaped prisoner

Local police are still looking for for 26-year-old Dustin Allen Evans, who escaped from Edinburgh Police in downtown Columbus on Nov. 17th.

He was chased in Hope last week and officers tried to serve an arrest warrant on him Saturday morning in Franklin, but he was not captured, said Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox.  That attempt was in the 500 block of Kentucky Street in Franklin at about 7:50 a.m. Saturday, according to records from the dispatch center.

Evans is five feet four inches tall and about 160 pounds, with distinctive tattoos including the word “Misunderstood” on his left temple and the cartoon character Stewie Griffin on his right forearm.

Authorities say that if you see Evans you should not approach him, but instead call 911. He is considered armed and dangerous.
