Dallas jail inmate flees while taking out trash
DALLAS, TX -- An inmate facing burglary charges has escaped from the Dallas County jail while taking out some trash.
Sheriff's officials say 38-year-old Donald Greenlee fled from the Lew Sterrett Justice Center early Wednesday by jumping a fence topped with razor wire.
Records show the inmate from Midlothian was in custody related to burglary charges dating back to 1997. Further details weren't immediately available.
Rainy conditions in the Dallas area early Wednesday prevented deputies searching for Greenlee from using a helicopter.
