Pagosa Springs deputies beaten as inmates break out of jail

22 Jul

The hunt is on for two men who escaped from a jail in Pagosa Springs on Tuesday night.

Archuleta County deputies say 24-year-old Jason Snow and 45-year-old Todd Reseigh beat up two officers and broke out of the detention center around 8 p.m. The officers suffered minor injuries.

Deputies say the pair then stole a car from behind the jail and headed south on Archuleta County Road 500.

A deputy chased them, but they eluded capture and dumped their car on the New Mexico state line.

Investigators believe the escapees were on foot near the Navajo River and should be considered armed and dangerous.
