Inmate escapes by mistake

-A A +A

A detainee at the Adams County Jail got out by mistake early April 3, and deputies are on the lookout for him.

Joseph Alan Yost is 53. He stands 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs 185 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. 

A press statement said Yost was inadvertently released at 1 a.m. after he posted bond on a DUI charge for an Adams County case. He still has pending charges of DUI and driving under revocation from a case in Arapahoe County.

Deputies and detectives tried to contact Yost during the day April 3 without success. If you see him or someone matching that description, call 911 or the sheriff's office at 303-288-1535.
