Police searching for inmates who escaped from Guilford County Jail
35-year-old Jose Alberto Hernandez-Hernandez and 36-year-old Jose Idel Sid
HIGH POINT, N.C. — Authorities said two inmates escaped from the Guilford County Jail Saturday in High Point — including a man convicted of several sex offenses with a child.
Police said they are looking for 35-year-old Jose Alberto Hernandez-Hernandez and 36-year-old Jose Idel Sid (also known as Jose Joaquin-Del Cid Sosa).
Officials said Hernandez-Hernandez has been charged with first degree sex offense with a child and six counts of indecent liberties with a child. He had received a $600,000 bond.
Hernandez-Hernandez is described as a Hispanic male standing 5’6” and weighing 130 pounds. Authorities said his last known address was 1500 Davis Ave. in High Point.
Police said Idel Sid was charged as an immigration detainer and was being held without bond.
He is described as a Hispanic male standing 5’5” and weighing around 145 pounds with a tattoo on his right arm reading “AMOR”.
Guilford County officials said the suspects escaped by breaking a window, climbing down a ledge and dropping to the ground.
Guilford County Sheriff BJ Barnes said this is the first escape of its kind in the area in around 18 years.
“We have excellent assistance from the High Point Police Department and we have additional staff held over to check all possibilities in locating the two suspects,” he said, according to a prepared statement.
Anyone with any information can contact Colonel Randy Powers with the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office at (336) 508-8834.
