A search is underway in Onslow County and across the state for two prison inmates who walked away from a work detail in Halifax County Wednesday.

Lawmen say the two then broke into a nearby hunting club, stole two rifles and a pistol, and then tied up two people and stole their truck.

That truck was spotted Thursday morning in Southwest Onslow County, sparking a search.

Jessie McCrobie, age 30, is a habitual felon. Cloman Smith, age 30, is serving time for larceny, breaking and entering and other charges. Both were being held at the minimum security Tillery Correctional Center.
