Two inmates being held at the Robertson County Detention Facility on federal charges are on the loose after escaping from the jailhouse early Wednesday morning.

The inmates, 29-year-old Joshua Caldwell and 26-year-old Jessie Lobbins, are likely armed and should be considered dangerous.

Lobbins has been incarcerated since July of this year on murder charges.  Caldwell was arrested in October for meth distribution.

Police said the men have tendencies to be violent.

“Our main focus is to get these individuals back into custody as quickly as possible,” said Sheriff Bill Holt, adding, “They are dangerous people, they're people of interest.”

They are believed to be driving a 1995 red GMC pickup truck with Tennessee license plate No. 855-TDG.

The truck was reported stolen on Wednesday morning.  It was parked a few miles from the Robertson County Detention Facility, located at 311 Fifth Avenue East in Springfield.

Two uniforms for an environmental company were also stolen from the same neighborhood Wednesday morning.  The escapes are believed to be wearing the uniforms, which consist of navy blue pants and a light blue button up long sleeve shirt.

The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a $5,000 each reward for information leading to the capture of the men.

“All over Tennessee, we've put out a nationwide broadcast for these fellows they've got a lot of connections in a lot of different places, so we're following up every lead possible,” Holt said.

Anyone with information on the truck or their whereabouts is urged to contact the Robertson County Sheriff's Office at 615-384-4911 or the U.S. Marshals Service in Nashville at 615-736-5417.
