CONROE (March 18, 2013)--The search continued Monday for escaped Montgomery County Jail inmate Britt Chadvurn Privatte, 40 of Sugar Land, who evidently scaled a wall inside a recreation yard Sunday and broke through the upper fencing to the jail’s roof.

He was discovered missing during a check Sunday afternoon.

Deputies say Privatte should be considered dangerous.

He may have been spotted overnight in a wooded area near the jail, deputies said.

Authorities said he could be wearing boxer shorts and a long-sleeve T-shirt.

He and two other suspects were arrested on Jan. 7 in connection with a bank robbery in the Kingwood area.

He’s charged with four counts of aggravated robbery, escape while arrested, burglary of a habitation and order of arrest in connection with four different cases in three counties.
