Numerous law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and U.S. Marshals Service, are on the hunt for a South Carolina inmate who escaped from a Lexington County prison on November 10.

According to Fox News Digital, 43-year-old Shaun Wiles escaped from the Clarendon County Detention Center at around 11 a.m. Friday. The U.S. Marshals Service said Wiles was being held on a “dangerous drug charge.”
