A "major subject" has been arrested in connection with a jailbreak in Big Horn County Friday night while the third escapee has still not been found by law enforcement. 

Three inmates escaped from the Big Horn County Detention Center on Friday night after assaulting a detention officer and dispatcher. 

On Wednesday an unnamed person was arrested at a Hardin home, according to a press release from the Big Horn County Sheriff's Office.

The person was arrested by the U.S. Marshall's Service and the sheriff's office after a search warrant was conducted at the home.

It's unclear what connection the person had with the escaped inmates. The person's identity has not been released "pending investigation," the release states.

The third escapee, Andrew Parham, has not been found. He is a 25-year-old white male, with brown hair and eyes. He weighs 185 pounds and is 6-feet and 4-inches tall.
