A BOLO was released for a 2008 white Ford F-250 two-door with silver tool boxes on both side rails. The Georgia license plate is BCX5372.

The truck is described as not being in pristine condition. It was hitched to a trailer that was cut by a torch, according to Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills.

In a Wednesday afternoon press conference, Sills said the truck was taken sometime between 6 p.m. Tuesday and 6 a.m. Wednesday when the business reopened.

Sills said the public's help in locating both vehicles is crucial. A green 2004 Honda Civic was carjacked shortly after the shooting on Hwy 16. That was the vehicle recovered on Wednesday.

“We desperately need the public’s help in finding both of these vehicles,” Sills said.

As a part of this investigation, 11Alive has confirmed the GBI pulled surveillance video from the Chevron on 7 Islands Rd. in Buckhead, Ga. in Morgan County. It sits across from Martin Marietta Morgan County Quarry.


The reward for their capture was raised to $90,000 Wednesday afternoon. Sills said the FBI, Georgia Department of Corrections, U.S. Marshall Service, Ga. Sheriff's Association, Fraternal Order of Police, as well as the Putnam, Butts and Spalding County Sheriff Departments contributed to the growing reward.

Police and law enforcement officials from throughout the Southeast continue to search for two escaped inmates accused of shooting and killing two corrections officers in Putnam County on Tuesday morning.
