Illinois jail inmate escapes delivering meals

MORRIS, Ill. (AP) — A man described described as a “model inmate” escaped Saturday from a county jail outside Chicago while helping deliver meals, authorities said.

Andrew J. Viles, 34, left the jail in Morris around 4:30 p.m. and last seen wearing a dark coat, light color jeans and dark shoes, the Grundy County sheriff’s office said. Viles had been jailed since June on a burglary charge and for violating parole on an earlier burglary conviction.

“Viles had been a model inmate,” the sheriff’s office said. “He had earned the role of jail trustee within the facility. This trustee role allowed him certain privileges, including assisting with meal service.”
