ACSO: Deputy Keith assists ACYDC personnel

By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Sunday, July 12, 2020, the Adair County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the Adair County Youth Development Center (Juvenile Detention).

Upon arrival, officers were advised that a juvenile inmate was attempting escape and was on the roof of the building.

Deputy Joey Keith and two corrections officers made their way to the rooftop. When law enforcement came into contact with the juvenile, he stepped over the ledge of the building. Deputy Keith and one of the corrections officers were able to grab the juvenile and bring him back over the ledge onto the rooftop, where he was taken back into custody.

The juvenile will face numerous charges stemming from the escape.

Deputy Joey Keith is investigating the incident.
