Morgan has been in the jail since Jan. 9 on a nonviolent theft charge, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth said.
Morgan is a White man standing 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. He has brown hair that is slightly gray in the front and brown eyes. He was wearing a blue jail jumpsuit at the time of his escape.
