Minimum Security Inmate Escape

Wednesday, March 3, 2004 10:00 AM

For Immediate Release:

A Sutter County Jail inmate walked out of the Minimum Security Facility last night at approximately 9:55 PM. The inmate was discovered after an alarm on the east gate was triggered indicating that it had been opened. This gate is an unlocked fire escape perimeter gate. An immediate head count of the Minimum Security inmates housed in the facility confirmed that an inmate was missing from the male dormitory.

The inmate is identified as Jon Thomas Danisan, a white male, age 47, 5-11, 160, brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing inmate clothing which consisted of a green shirt, and green and white striped pants. He is a Yuba County resident and a life-long resident of the local area. Danisan was in custody for numerous misdemeanor and infraction traffic warrants, and he is considered to be a low-risk inmate and not a danger to the public.

A complaint charging Danisan with escape has been forwarded to the Sutter County District Attorney for a warrant of arrest. Danisan’s minimum security privileges have been suspended and he will be placed in the Maximum Security Unit upon his return to custody.

Anyone with information concerning Danisan’s location is asked to call the Sutter County Sheriff’s Department at (530) 82207307, or your local law enforcement agency.
