The man accused of hiding three escaped inmates allegedly knew about the plan before it took place.
Detectives say three inmates walked out of the Curry County Detention Center with the alleged help of Detention Officer Sarina Dodson last Friday.
The inmates were on the run for three days before finally being arrested at the home of Jon Hausmann.
According to the Eastern New Mexico News, a criminal complaint says Hausmann was told about the plans during a phone call with one of the inmates before the escape.
So far, there is no word on possible charges.
All three inmates and the detention officer remain in the Curry County Detention Center.
