Reward offered for information leading to arrest of escaped inmate

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of one of the two capital-murder suspects who escaped from the Raymond detention center.

Gerome Moore was captured Thursday night, but Malcolm Landfair remains at large. Both men escaped sometime after a 4 a.m.head-count on Thursday. They busted a hole through a brick wall. Now residents are anxious to see Landfair back behind bars.

"I'm glad that one has been caught and I really hope they find the other one because it is just not safe. I mean those are capital murder suspects and people are at risk there are people in the streets all around, innocent bystanders. You never know what's going through their minds and they're escaped and what their agenda is so I really hope they're able to catch that other person," says concerned citizen Valencia Wilson.

Hinds County Sheriff Victor Mason says his department has strong leads on Landfair's location.
