Jail Escape: Bryan Webb And Jerry Williams On The Run Since Sunday

WESTCLIFFE, Colo. (CBS4) - Two inmates are still on the run after escaping from a jail Sunday night in Westcliffe. Authorities say they overpowered a guard and locked her in a cell Sunday night. The Custer County Sheriff's Office says 39-year-old Jerry Williams and 30-year-old Bryan Webb took the deputy's radio and the keys to a 2017 Toyota Sienna minivan. The vehicle belonged to the Rotary Club.

Authorities say Webb made it to his parents' home in Walsenburg -- about 60 miles away -- after his escape, but he has since moved on.
