The U.S. Marshal Service is offering a reward for a Virginia jail escapee with ties to Chowan County.
Larry Dodson, Jr. escaped from the Blue Ridge Regional Jail in Lynchburg, Virginia last Tuesday. He escaped from that jail by tying bed sheets together and scaling down a 100 foot wall.
Authorities are investigating the discovery of a stolen car from Lynchburg that was found abandoned in Bertie County on Saturday and whether Dodson was driving the car.
