Police are scouring the East Bay, looking for an inmate who reportedly escaped from the Santa Rita Jail this afternoon.

Media outlets are reporting that at about 2 p.m., someone called the Alameda County Sheriff's Office, saying they saw an inmate walk out of the jail.

We contacted the Sheriff's Office to confirm these details and to get more information, however an administrator said nobody was available to speak with us just yet.


Perhaps because everyone is too busy looking for the inmate on the lam. Deputies are currently searching the immediate jail grounds as well  as the hills north of the jail in Dublin and San Ramon, according to news reports.

The inmate is a robbery suspect out of Oakland.

Check back for updates.
