BOLEY, Okla. (AP) – An Oklahoma prison inmate who walked away from a minimum security facility on New Year’s Eve was the fourth inmate to escape from the prison in less than a week.
Department of Corrections spokesman Jerry Massie says 24-year-old Christopher Rowe remained on the loose Tuesday. Massie says officials believe he is in the Tulsa area. The other three inmates who walked away from the John H. Lilley Correctional Center on Dec. 27 were returned to the Okfuskee County facility within a day.
Massie says there is no security fence at the prison like there are at medium- and maximum-security prisons. Security officers staff the prison but Massie says inmates still find opportunities to walk away.
Rowe was convicted on drug charges and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
