An inmate from the Linn County jail has escaped custody while he was being treated at a hospital.


Jeffrey Blozvich was being held for an Aggravated Theft warrant. Because of some medical issues, on July 12th he was taken to St. Luke's Hospital in Cedar Rapids.

Hospital staff was instructed to notify the sheriff before he was released after treatment.
However, on Monday afternoon, the hospital called the sheriff reporting that Blozvich had walked away from the facility.

Authorities are now asking the public for any information on Blozvich's whereabouts. He is described as white, 6' tall, 175 lbs, last seen wearing a red shirt and blue hospital pants.

If anyone has information, they are asked to call the Linn County sheriff or Cedar Rapids police.
