The Dickinson Police Department announced an additional arrest made in connection with two inmates who escape from the Southwest Multi-County Correctional Center on Tuesday afternoon.



In a press release, DPD confirmed the arrest of Elizabeth Anne Yost, 38, of Dickinson, on two counts of acting as an accomplice — a Class C Felony.

Yost was identified by Dickinson PD detectives as being the driver of the vehicle that took the escaped-inmates Joshua McCleary and Kristopher Hogue away from the area and dropped them off northwest of Dickinson. Detectives were able to establish two leads on possible locations of the inmates and ultimately narrowed their search to an area along the west of Highway 22's Truck Bypass.

The Stark County Sheriff’s Office responded to the location and located the two inmates hiding in a tree row, who were subsequently taken into custody without incident.



The investigation into the circumstances surrounding the escape itself continues.
