Four inmates from the Ottawa County Jail escaped this afternoon. The inmates were working INSIDE the jail, and when the contract worker exited, all four fled behind him.

Jail staff began to chase the inmates and notified local law enforcement. Three inmates fled eastbound towards NEO College, where one of the four inmates was captured. The fourth inmate fled westbound towards Main Street of Miami. The remaining three inmates still at large are

Daniel Zajicek, Buck Martindale, and Tyler Tavis.

The arresting agencies were notified as soon as the inmates were identified so that could contact the victims.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office continues to follow leads to their whereabouts.

Zajicek is considered dangerous.

If you have any information regarding these three, contact 911.

A full news release will be given at a later time.
