Greene County Officials Asking For Public's Help In Locating Escaped Inmate

A Greene County inmate is on the loose, and deputies need help finding him.

Timothy Crisp escaped Sunday morning around 10:30 from the Greene County Workhouse on Summer Street in Greeneville, according to Greene County Sheriff Pat Hankins.

Sheriff Hankins said Crisp climbed up the gutter on the side of the building, went over the fence and ran from the facility.

Investigators believe Crisp may have gotten a ride out of the area.

There is a warrant out for Crip's arrest for the escape.

Sheriff Hankins said investigators were conducting interviews, checking phone calls and talking to people

in the community that may have seen the escaped inmate.

Anyone who sees Crisp is asked to contact the Greene County Sheriff’s Department at 423-972-7000 or 423-798-1800.
