One back in custody after pair escape Friday from Sebastian County Detention Center

On Friday at around 6:00 pm Sebastian County Detention Center realized two male inmates had escaped from the facility. The means of escape and the details of escape are currently under investigation.

The two males were Jeremiah Slavens, 39, of Fort Smith and Dustin Smith, 36, of Muldrow, Oklahoma.

Slavens, who had been in SCADC for the last three days, was in jail for Failing to Appear in Court, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Theft. He was committed to the Arkansas Department of Corrections.

Slavens was captured later Thursday evening.

Smith, who has been in SCADC for over a month, was in jail for Parole Violations, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Theft, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He was also committed to Arkansas Department of Corrections.

Smith is a white male, 5’ 10” and 175 lbs.

He has brown hair and blue eyes. He may have a beard and moustache. He has a neck tattoo that says, “100% Country”.

Smith is still on the loose.

Jail clothing was found at SCADC so it is unknown what he might be currently wearing.

Deputies are in the field and working leads to get these two back in jail. Both Slavens and Smith are considered to be dangerous. The public is asked to not make contact with the two if they suspect they have spotted them. Instead, the public is asked to call law enforcement.

Anyone who has information on the whereabouts of these two subjects or believes they have spotted the inmates is asked to call 911 or the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office at 479-783-1051.
