Former Alabama prison chief Vicky White was slapped with additional charges Monday for allegedly using an alias to purchase the distinctive getaway car used in the escape of convicted killer Casey Cole White.
The charges of second-degree forgery and identity theft have now been added to Vicky’s arrest warrant, the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office said.
The 56-year-old is accused of using a fake name to buy the orange 2007 Ford Edge she and Casey, 38, allegedly used when they escaped from the Lauderdale County jail two weeks ago.
The car was later found dumped on a rural Tennessee road just hours after they allegedly fled.
Vicky, the former deputy corrections director at the prison, is said to have had a “prison romance” with Casey – and helped him plan and execute the breakout, authorities said.
Casey, covered in white racist tattoos, was awaiting trial in a murder case when he reportedly managed to break free.
A nationwide manhunt has been underway since the pair disappeared together on April 29 after Vicky allegedly told colleagues she was taking Casey to the courthouse for a mental health evaluation.
Casey was caught on surveillance footage walking out of jail and boarding Vicky’s sheriff’s cruiser.
The two left in a squad car, which was later found abandoned in a nearby parking lot where investigators believe Vicky had parked the getaway car.
When Vicky didn’t return and answer the phone that afternoon, authorities determined the couple were missing. They eventually learned that the mental health assessment was never planned.
