Phoenix Police say a felony suspect escaped from custody while at Maricopa Medical Center on Sunday.
Wadsworth Jennings was arrested Friday for marijuana related charges and criminal impersonation. He is not considered to be a violent offender.
Authorities say Jennings was being treated for a medical condition and pulled the IV out of his arm and snuck away while the officer watching him was distracted for a minute.
A spokesperson for Maricopa Medical Center confirms the hospital was on lockdown as police searched for Jennings.
Jennings is described as a black male, 5' 5" to 5' 7" tall and about 120 pounds. He was last seen wearing a hospital gown.
If you have any information on Jennings' whereabouts, call the Phoenix police.
