A Chilton County inmate who had escaped on June 26 is back in Chilton County Sheriff’s Office custody.


“We Took him back in custody last night at 9:45 in the 100 block of County Road 8,” Chilton County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Gerald Mims said.

Inmate Jeremy Wade Littleton had escaped custody at Shelby Baptist Medical Center, after being taken to the emergency room on self-inflicted medical issues.

“We believe that was in the attempts to get out of jail on a medical release,” Mims said.

According to a CCSO press release, “Littleton was able to evade law enforcement by sneaking out of his hospital room’s bathroom” at Shelby Baptist Medical Center around 6:30 p.m.

The Sheriff’s Office had issued a release asking residents to report any information about his whereabouts to notify the Sheriff’s Office.
