Man breaks out of Pott Jail

By The Mercury

Authorities are on the search for an inmate who escaped from the Pottawatomie County Jail in Westmoreland Friday morning.

Officials said Jon Adrian Getzlaff, 24, Wamego, escaped from the jail’s exercise yard shortly after 9 a.m. Friday. He is described as 5-foot-4-inches, about 150 pounds, with blonde hair and blue eyes. He has short hair and scruffy facial hair, officials said.

Getzlaff was last seen wearing a grey t-shirt, possibly with the word “relax” on it and black and white striped pants.

He has been in custody since the end of March on several drug-related charges.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office at (785)-457-3353, the Riley County Police Department at (785)-537-2112, or Crimestoppers at (785)-539-7777.
