UPDATE: The two escapees from the Liberty County Jail have been captured. They were taken into custody in the last hour in the Shepherd area. As soon as more information is available, an update will be posted to http://www.BluebonnetNews.com.


During a routine bedcheck this morning at the Liberty County Jail in Liberty, it was discovered that two prisoners had slipped away from the jail sometime between the hours of 4 and 6 a.m.

The inmates are identified as Clay Sterling Harvey, 44, of Nederland, and Chance Marshall Hunt, 28, of Beaumont.

“When an inspection was made of the jail facility, it was found that a fence on the east side of the jail perimeter had been cut open. It appears this was the escape route of both Harvey and Hunt,” said Capt. Ken DeFoor, spokesperson for the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office.

Harvey is described as a white male, 5 feet and 5 inches tall, weighing 193 pounds with short blonde hair and blue eyes. He was in jail for a parole violation and for Manufacture and Delivery of a Controlled Substance, 200 to 400 grams. He was held on a $100,000 bond.

Hunt is a 6-foot tall white male weighing 170 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes. Hunt has a lengthy criminal history with the most recent charges in June 2019 when he was arrested for Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, Burglary of a Coin-Operated Machine and Unlawfully Carrying a Weapon. He was being held without bond.

According to DeFoor, tracking dogs with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice will be used to search for the two prisoners. Texas Rangers are also assisting the sheriff’s office.

If anyone sees the prisoners, do not attempt to apprehend them. Call 911 and report their location.

The Liberty County Jail is under contract and operated by the GEO Group.
