LEWISVILLE, TX - Police are still searching for an inmate who escaped in Lewisville.
The inmate, Thomas Cano, went to The Medical Center of Lewisville Sunday afternoon for medical treatment. Police said he walked way when the officer supervising him went to check on a disturbance in another hospital room. They do not believe he is armed or dangerous.
"Well, I was pretty alarmed this morning when I saw it on the news,” said neighbor Oscar Salceda. “I immediately got out of bed and started listening more to more details and information about this person and made the kids aware to keep their doors locked and keep an eye out for a stranger or anybody walking around suspiciously."
Police said people who live near the hospital received an automated call making them aware of the incident.
Police arrested Cano for evading arrest and several additional drug charges Saturday near Plano. He is 5'6” with short hair and a beard. He last wore a gray t-shirt, blue jeans and green hospital socks with no shoes. He still had his handcuffs on.
