Escaped inmate update: Madison Sheriff’s van found

Local News

A four-day search for the escaped inmate out of Madison County, who is considered armed and dangerous, has yielded the man’s get away van.

Sheriff’s department officials say they recovered the stolen sheriff’s transport van Monday.

“We have recovered the van in the search area where we were looking earlier today,” Heath Hall of the Madison County Sheriff’s office said. 

Due to the sensitivity of the investigation into convict Todd Moudy’s whereabouts, officials say they cannot tell us where the van was discovered.

“It will hamper our search efforts,” Hall said. “We were working with Madison, Rankin and Leake [County officials].”

On Friday, Moudy managed to steal the vehicle after his court hearing, while shackled and handcuffed.

He was convicted on drug and firearms charges.
