Manhunt for Escaped Inmate may have Cost State $100,000(Robinson, IL) -- There’s a hefty price-tag associated with the manhunt that went down to capture the inmate who walked away from Robinson Correctional Center. The Robinson Police Department had about eight-thousand dollars in added personnel and fuel costs in helping in the search for Jared Carter, who was on the run for four days. The Crawford County Sheriff's Office had close to five-thousand dollars in expenses.
DOC Spokesman Tom Shaer says they're still calculating the final costs for the Department of Corrections, but he says expenses are going to be at least one-hundred-thousand dollars. Meanwhile, the DOC is expected to turn over its investigation to the Crawford County State's Attorney's Office for additional charges on Carter soon.
