Federal fugitive among 4 jail escapees in South Dakota

Posted: Updated:

LOWER BRULE, S.D. (AP) - The U.S. Marshal's Service says one of the four inmates who escaped from a jail in Lower Brule is wanted on a federal charge of violating parole.

Authorities say 21-year-old Troy Fairbanks was being held by the Lower Brule Tribe on allegations of domestic assault. He's wanted by the Marshal's Service for violating terms of his supervised release on a previous burglary conviction.

Fairbanks and three others broke out of the jail Tuesday night. One of the inmates has since been captured by Bureau of Indian Affairs officers.

Fairbanks is described as 5 feet 7 inches tall and approximately 160 pounds. He has a distinct injury to his left eye. He may be with one or two of the others who escaped.
