Update: Inmates Escape from Douglas County Work Detail

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is looking for two inmates who escaped from a work detail Thursday afternoon.

Kenneth Judson Long and Coleman Dwayne Manessa escaped around 12:45 p.m. from a work location off Post Road near Winston, Ga. Both men are currently under arrest for burglary, theft by taking, and theft by receiving stolen property, the sheriff’s office said.

The men were last seen getting into a tan or gold sedan, similar to a Ford Crown Victoria. They were wearing dark blue jail uniforms with orange stripes.

WSB first reported the escape, saying three inmates had left the work detail, but the sheriff’s office identified the two suspects.

If you have any information, call the Douglas County Sheriff's Office at 770-949-5656.
