A multi-agency search is going on right now in the Gluckstadt industrial area for a white male matching the description of Joseph Spring.
According to Hinds County Sheriff Tyree Jones, a stolen black Honda confirmed connected to Spring was spotted by officers, and the driver and occupant(s) exited the vehicle on foot running.
Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker stated that one suspect is in custody, but they believe the escapee, Joseph Springs, is still at large.
According to the Madison County Sheriff’s Department, at 6:26 AM, a Madison Police officer identified a stolen Honda Accord traveling northbound on Interstate 55 in Madison. When they tried to stop the vehicle it fled north on Interstate 55 and a vehicle pursuit ensued. There were two male subjects inside the vehicle.

The stolen vehicle exited the Interstate at the Gluckstadt exit and proceeded east approximately a quarter of a mile near the intersection of Gluckstadt Road and Industrial Drive.

The driver stopped the vehicle at which time the two men jumped out of the car and ran on foot into a wooded area nearby. The stolen vehicle is believed to be associated with the recent escapee still at large from the Hinds County Detention Center in Raymond.

A perimeter was established in the wooded area and a search began using officers and police K9s. One of the male subjects was apprehended in the wooded area. The apprehended male is not the Hinds County escapee. The other male subject is still at large and was last seen wearing all dark clothing.

Officers and deputies from the Gluckstadt Police Department, Madison County Sheriff’s Office and Mississippi Highway Patrol Air Support arrived and are assisting with the search.

Officers continue to search the area and anyone observing anyone matching the remaining suspect’s description or acting suspiciously is asked to call local law enforcement via 9-1-1.

Spring escaped from the Raymond Detention Center on the morning of May 29th.

He is approximately 32 years of age, described as a W/M, 5’08, blonde hair and blue eyes. Spring has multiple tattoos on his body and neck. He was incarcerated for Probation Violation, Possession of a Stolen Weapon, and Burglary.
