A suspected bank robber escaped from the Montgomery County Jail Sunday afternoon.

Britt Chadvurn Privatte, 40, might have climbed a wall inside the recreation yard and broke through the upper fencing to the roof, according to a press release from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.

He was discovered missing at 1 p.m. and officers searched the immediate area.

Houston Police Department officers arrested Privatte and two others in January as suspects in a bank robbery in the Kingwood area that fell within the boundaries of Montgomery County, according to the release.

Privatte faced seven charges from Walker, Fort Bend and Harris counties, along with HPD, largely in connection to burglaries and aggravated robberies. His bond amounts totaled $172,000.

According to the release, several police agencies are coordinating a search to find Privatte, who worked in Walker County and has a listed address in Sugar Land.

Police warn Privatte should be considered dangerous and ask that anyone with information that could lead to Privatte's capture should call their local law enforcement or dial 936-760-5800 and choose option 3.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1000 cash reward for information leading to his arrest or an indictment on a felony crime and can be reached anonymously at 800-392-7867 or www.montgomerycountycrimestoppers.org.
