Scioto County authorities are searching for a prisoner who escaped Saturday night. Four inmates and two accomplices are in custody, but Thomas Comberger is at large.

A caller told deputies that “2-3 inmates” were escaping by possibly climbing a fence on Saturday evening after 8 p.m. Sheriff’s deputies began their search by contacting the prison and received the names of the escapees and a description of a female near the fence line before the escape.

Deputies quickly located a female, identified as 32-year-old Allie Angelo of Akron, and asked if she had observed the escape.

Despite Angelo’s denials, she fits the description given by the prison worker and was held in custody.

Deputies say Angelo arrived at the Star Community Justice Center with her ex-husband, 31-year-old Matthew Sladen of Akron, to aid her fiancée, 37-year-old Jeffrey Fields of Cuyahoga Falls, in his getaway.

Angelo was taken into custody for aiding escape, a 4th degree felony.

At a Waverly Walmart, police detained Sladen. Aiding escape is a 4th-degree felony, and possessing criminal tools is a 3rd-degree felony.

Fields was captured by Scioto County Sheriff’s deputies on Junior Furnace Road, and Morris was caught by Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers on the same road.

Two suspicious people were reported at a railroad property on Sunday. Two escapees were seen on U.S. 52 in Porter Township when deputies arrived. The duo ran from deputies, so the sheriff’s office got help from Portsmouth K-9 officers.

Scioto County Sheriff’s deputies captured Aaron Brigeman at the railroad property. Brigeman provided details about Walker Pence, who was also captured.

Thomas Charles Comberger, 46, is wanted. 6’4″, 245lbs, brown hair, blue eyes. If spotted, call 9-1-1.

Scioto County Sheriff David Thoroughman said all the escapees were low-level, non-violent drug offenders. The Star Community Justice Center reduces prison admissions through treatment and education.
