The U.S. Marshal’s Service is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the capture of Ricky Jacktavian Mosley, who escaped from a transportation officer Tuesday, said Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson.
Mosley, 24, of Simons Lane in Statesboro, stands 5’9” and weighs around 160 pounds. He is a Georgia State Prison inmate and was being transported to the Bulloch County Jail for upcoming court hearings when he escaped.
Somehow, he slipped out of handcuffs and leg irons while still on the transport van, said Bulloch County Sheriff Inv. Jared Akins.
Mosley fled when being escorted into the jail, running through the Bulloch County Correctional Institute garden and scaling a fence. Deputies called in help from area agencies including the Georgia State Patrol helicopter and K9 units from Reidsville, but the dogs were unable to pick up a good trail and Mosley remained at large throughout the night.
He was to be in court Wednesday for jury selection in a 2011 Statesboro Police Department case where he was charged with false imprisonment, Akins said. He was in prison for parole violation, having been on parole for a previous robbery
The Statesboro Police, Georgia State Patrol, Georgia Department of Corrections and U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force also responded to help, he said.
Anyone who may come into contact with Mosley is urged to use caution and to call Akins at (912) 690-5083 or the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office dispatch at (912) 764-1771. Calls also may be made to U.S. Marshals Task Force Agent Billy Anderson at (912) 414-2280, and online tips can be made anonymously at email@example.com.
