Update to escapee story

On December 5, 2015, at around 04:25 a Deputy with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office made a traffic stop on a vehicle just east of Fairbury Nebraska on Highway 136. During the course of the investigation the K-9 Drug Dog was deployed and illegal narcotics were discovered inside of the vehicle. The vehicle was occupied at the time of the stop by two individuals identified as Ameretta M. Trusler and Andrew Santiago of Omaha Nebraska. Both subjects were arrested and during further investigation, the male subject Andrew Santiago managed to escape custody of the deputies while still handcuffed and barefoot. Ameretta M. Trusler remained in custody.
