PRESCOTT -- The reward for information leading to the capture of the fugitive Wade Dickinson has been increased from $5,000 to $7,000. It has now been a month and a half since Dickinson went over the fence at the Detention Center and fled from the jail.

While he has relatives in both Camp Verde and Prescott Valley, Dickinson, standing 6-foot-1 and weighing 190 pounds, has not been seen since.

Before his escape Dickinson had finished criminal cases involving fraud schemes, false reporting of a stolen vehicle, theft, prohibited possession of a firearm, weapons misconduct, possession of dangerous drugs, etc., all occurring while he was on probation. He was expecting a 24-year prison term.

The detention center was alerted when a neighboring business reported that a man in an orange jumpsuit had tried to steal his vehicle.

Dickinson was last seen in the recreation yard, where a security camera had been broken. No one was watching the area when he fled

A report on the escape shows that the jail had information that Dickinson would try to escape but somehow he was classified medium rather than high security. He apparently stood on basketball hoops to get over the wall. Those basketball hoops have since been removed.

U.S. Marshals have been asked to assist with his re-capture.
