Another jail breakout has occurred at the Nash County Detention Center, but this time only one man managed to make it out.

The Nash County Sheriff’s Office reported about 11:41 a.m. that an inmate named Terrell Gailand Miles, 29, escaped “a few moments ago” from the detention center at 220 W. Washington Street in Nashville.

Miles, who lives in Rocky Mount, is believed to have stuffed materials in a door lock to render it inoperable, according to a news release from the Nash County Sheriff’s Office. Once outside the door, which leads directly to the exercise yard, Miles apparently pushed out the lower part of the fence surrounding the exercise area to gain access to the perimeter passageway.

Once in the perimeter passageway, he ran a short distance and then hopped a six-foot fence to complete his escape.

Miles had been jailed in the detention center on one count of aiding and abetting armed robbery, one count of possession of a firearm, one count of misdemeanor larceny, one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and one count of reckless driving, the release said.

A further investigation of state records reveals that Miles previously spent time in prison for habitual breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering and felony breaking and entering.

The sheriff’s office reported that Miles shaved his hair during the weekend so he now has shorter hair than in photos that have been released to the public.

The Nash County Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement agencies are currently following up on leads. Anyone with any information about the whereabouts of this inmate should call  459-1510 or Crime Stoppers at  977-1111.

In March, five inmates escaped the Nash County Detention Center after officials said they escaped through a “dilapidated” fence wiring and a small door. No deputies were inside the exercise yard at the time of the March escape, and a monitoring camera was turned in a different direction, causing a blind spot, officials said. Authorities later captured all five of them.
