CAMP VERDE, Ariz. — The U.S. Marshals Service is joining the manhunt for
an inmate who escaped from a central Arizona jail.
U.S. Marshal David Gonzales of the Arizona District said Thursday that federal
agents will work with local officials to locate Wade Cole Dickinson.
The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office said the 28-year-old Dickinson fled on foot
from the Camp Verde Detention Center earlier this month. Officials say Dickinson
scaled a wall in the jail’s recreation yard and separated overhead security
fencing to access the roof and climb down to the ground level.
He was awaiting a transfer to a state prison.
Dickinson recently was sentenced to nearly 25 years in prison for fraud, drugs
and possession of a firearm.
