Montgomery County Jail inmate indicted on escape charges

An inmate who broke out of the Montgomery County Jail on July 5 has been indicted on escape charges.

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – An inmate who broke out of the Montgomery County Jail on July 5 has been indicted on escape charges.

According to a Montgomery County grand jury report, 45-year-old Aaron Moore is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on the felony escape charge.

According to an incident report, Moore walked out of the jail’s lobby door without anyone noticing. It says he used compression scissors he stole from the jail’s medics office to break a lock on the secure door that was holding him. During the two-hour period, he made 30 trips to the restroom, unchallenged by any security officer.

The report says once Moore broke through that door, two other security doors just opened once he stood by them. He got out of the secure portion of the jail, walked down the hall and walked out a handicap access door to the street.

Moore was found about five hours after he left the jail at a home in a closet.

He is back in the Montgomery County Jail. Moore was originally booked for an assault charge.
