An inmate escapes after fooling jail officials in Morgan City.
Rodney Hayes was incarcerated for Distribution of Cocaine and a hold for a parole violation. His brother is incarcerated in the same jail and was preparing to bond out.
Rodney Hayes stepped forward and presented himself as his brother and the jailer did not question it. He was released and a short time later the jail caught the mistake and notified Detectives.
Hayes was last seen in a 2003 Black Ford crew cab truck with la license # W233295. He is wanted for Simple Escape and his original charges. If you have information please contact Morgan City Police Department (985)380-4605.
