Man caught after escaping Justice Center

 

CINCINNATI -- Authorities have released new details in the escape of an inmate from the Hamilton County Justice Center this past weekend.

Paul Elijah Greene, 19, said nothing when he appeared in Hamilton County court Monday morning. But the sheriff's office said he's been talking to them about his apparent weekend adventure.

Greene was working kitchen detail at the justice center on Saturday when he decided to hide under an ARAMARK food services truck, police said.

When the truck drove away, Greene told police he was holding on underneath.

But his every move outside the gate was being watched -- not by security, but by another inmate looking out her cell window.

The female inmate saw Greene throw his shirt near a trash bin by the Horseshoe Casino before running toward the Greyhound station, deputies said.

Greene later contacted his mother, who police say drove him to an apartment building on Dantzler Drive in Lincoln Heights.

Authorities said his mother had no idea he was incarcerated.

Greene then took refuge in apartment where residents Dante and Derrick Davis helped him, police said.

They, along with Sharron Larkin, are charged with complicity by letting Greene hide in a shower. They have since been released on their own recognizance.

Green was arraigned on a $25,000 bond for an escape charge. He has a grand jury hearing scheduled for Oct. 9.

He is now back behind bars.
