Inmates escape Middle River Regional Jail while cleaning the kitchen

STAUNTON, Va. — Two inmates escaped Middle River Regional Jail early Monday morning. The escape happened at about 3:20 a.m.

Johnson and Henderson were in jail on drug charges.

Both had court appearances scheduled for this summer.
