Wanted Poster For Man Mistakenly Released From Minnehaha County Jail


The search continues for a man mistakenly released from the Minnehaha County Jail.

The Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office put out a wanted poster on social media Tuesday morning, asking anyone who sees Adrian Watson to give them a call. 

Authorities say another inmate with a similar name was supposed to be released on Monday.  Somehow, Adrian Watson was released instead. 

We went to the courthouse to look into his criminal background and this is what we found.  He has several pending cases between November 2017 and March of this year.  That’s when he was booked into jail.  In January, he was arrested for false impersonation.  Court papers say he lied to police and told them he was someone else.

According to the wanted poster, Watson is now wanted for escape.
