Nicholas Meyer

THIBODAUX, LA – Police are looking for a woman who planned to help her husband escape from jail.

Twenty-seven-year-old Alysia Meyer is wanted for conspiracy to commit simple escape, according to the Thibodaux Police Department.

Alysia Meyer planned to help her husband, 25-year-old Nicholas Meyer, escape from the Lafourche Parish Detention Center.

Nicholas Meyer is serving a 10 year sentence for an armed robbery he committed in July of last year.

The Meyers are accused of hatching an elaborate escape plan that involved Nicholas Meyer scaling a perimeter fence and hopping into a waiting car with Alysia Mayer, who would then drive him out of state.

Investigators recently got word of the escape plan and questioned Nicholas Meyer, who admitted to the scheme.

He has also been charged with conspiracy to commit simple escape, and his bond has been set at $100,000 for that offense, according to the TPD.

Investigators believe Alysia Meyer may be living in Ohio.
