NASHVILLE (WSMV) - Family members of a teen who escaped from a juvenile detention center last weekend are being charged with helping him after the escape.
Metro Police said the Juvenile Crime Task Force arrested three people for the escape of 15-year-old Calvin Howse, and Howse's sister was wanted by investigators. Jasmine Howse turned herself in to police on Friday morning.
Those being charged include:
- Danielle Horton, 33, Howse's mother
- Tyrone Anderson, 29, Howse's cousin
- Brandi Lyonn, 35, Howse family friend
- Jasmine Howse, 18, Howse's sister
All four are facing charges of accessories after the fact of escape and facilitation of escape.
Investigators say Howse was carrying a cell phone when he was arrested in Madison on Tuesday night.
Police analysts found that Horton not only knew about her son's whereabouts but also helped him get food and other items while he was with his sister and cousin. Anderson reportedly helped him get access to Wi-Fi so he could get onto the internet. Lyonn reportedly allowed Howse to sleep at her home and also helped get him food.
Bond has been set at $10,000 each for Horton, Anderson, and Lyonn. Investigators are still searching for the remaining escaped teens, 17-year-olds Morris Marsh and Brandon Caruthers.
Marsh was being held for murder and Caruthers for armed robbery. If you have any information, contact Crime Stoppers. Reward money for information leading to an arrest is in excess of $5,000.
