The inventory is 99.9% accurate; only the exact window frame is missing, and I had to substitute two torsos:

This set no. 1786 'Jailbreak Joe' came out in 1995, and it was a limited release, only available in North America and not featured in regular Lego catalogs.

With less than 200 parts, this model featured an impressive selection of vehicles and four minifigures. There aren't any exceedingly rare parts or unique decals in the inventory, but the set with the original box and instructions is quite valuable on the collectibles market, with BrickLink offers going as high as $45-100.

The box itself has an additional cutout for the stores' racks and a "Special Contest!" promo blast (I could not google more images or details to clarify what this was about). The artwork, which typically just shows the completed model's photo, also featured part of the faux Lego Gazette front page announcing the prison escape.

In this set, law enforcement has a standard inmate transporter van with motorcycle escort (identical to other "Police" sets from the same generation), plus a lightweight helicopter.

Jailbreak Joe, who gives the name to the model, is a criminal on the run, driving a sporty 4x4 off-roader with an aggressively raised rear and blue neon lights in the wheelbase. This minifigure, with a custom torso showing an inmate number '23768,' debuted in 1993 and appeared in several "Police" sets in the nineties. In some Lego commercials from the era, the same character is named Crazy Charlie; he also passed his prisoner number to Brickster, the main villain from the "Island Xtreme Stunts" theme.
