Family Claims Escaped Inmate Injured Elderly Man

Wanted escaped work release inmate, Jared Stokley

Mobile (WKRG) – A Mobile family claims a work release inmate robbed their elderly loved one and dragged him down a driveway, severely injuring him.

Investigators say Jared Stokely walked off his job site on Dauphin Island Parkway and stole a white 2007 Dodge Durango with a trailer attached and a lawn mower in the back. That is when family members say the victim was hurt.

They say Stokely dragged the 87-year-old man down a driveway severely scraping the man’s skin. They shared photos with News 5. 

The Mobile County Sheriff’s Office says this involves a theft, not a robbery and the man was injured while chasing the escaped inmate. Stokely remains on the loose tonight.
