Three men in the U.S. illegally escaped from an ICE vehicle Tuesday night at a truck stop in Scott County.
A prisoner transport company stopped at Loves in Lake, Mississippi. Three of the prisoners being transported for immigration purposes were able to get their handcuffs off and escape.
The men were eventually found behind a business near I-20 after an overnight manhunt.
Scott County Sheriff Mike Lee said in addition to charges related to their alien status, at least one is expected to be charged with burglary and at least one with driving under the influence.
