The recent escape from Stoddard County jail has resulted in four more arrests.
According to Stoddard County Sheriff Carl Hefner, Manuel Ajanel and John 'Kacy' Jones escaped from the jail around 10:36 p.m. Monday night through an air conditioning vent that went through the roof.
Jones was captured early Tuesday in Clay County, Ark. near Piggott and Rector.
After further investigation, the Stoddard County Sheriff's Department has charged four more people in connection with the escapes.
Crystal Jones and Matt Ryan have been charged with Class D felony of Accessory to escape or attempted escape while under arrest for a felony. The two allegedly aided Jones in his escape by getting him out of town and helping him get his car and other items.
Two other individuals have been arrested on charges of Accessory to escape in regards to Manuel Ajanel who is still on the loose.
Sherry Lee Grimm of Dexter and Shanna R. Valazquez of Bloomfield allegedly helped Ajanel get away from Stoddard County.
Hefner said Thursday that the two women drove Ajanel to Sikeston where they dropped him off and then returned to Dexter. Some time later, he called Grimm and told her he had been unable to secure a ride so she reportedly drove back to Sikeston and then took him to Memphis, Tenn..
No information was released as to where he may have gone once he reached Memphis.
Hefner did say, however, that he was quite sure that Ajanel had left the area.
Valazquez, Crystal Jones and Ryan are in Stoddard County Jail facing $50,000 cash only bonds. Grimm, also in custody, is in jail on a $75,000 cash only bond.
John "Kacy" Jones of Dexter was originally charged with Felony Distribution of a Controlled Substance (Marijuana). He was sitting in Stoddard County Jail facing a $150,000 cash only bond.
Ajanel is 24 years old, 5'4" and about 130 lbs.. He is of Hispanic origin with dark hair and skin. He was arrested on charges of forcible rape in early 2008.
Both men face new charges today of the Class D felonies of Escape and accessory to escape.
