A Warren County Regional Jail inmate escaped from the facility Sunday night around 9:20 p.m., according to a WKU text alert. 

The WKU Police Department later confirmed that the inmate was Benjamin Pedigo, according to a tweet posted Monday morning.

Pedigo was originally arrested Jan. 7. He's faced charges of tampering with physical evidence, evading police, possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia purchase/possession and failure to appear, according to the Warren County Jail's online database

Upon Pedigo's escape, WKUPD and the Bowling Green Police Department described Pedigo as a 6-foot-1-inch slim white male with a brown mohawk in a black jacket and brown pants. They also reported that he had a bandage on his hand. 

Kentucky State Police took charge of the investigation last night, according to the Bowling Green Police Department. 

WKUPD has asked that anyone with information on Pedigo's whereabouts call KSP at 270-782-2010. 

This is a developing story. More information will be added as it becomes available.
