2 Escaped Inmates Captured in Washington State
LITTLEROCK, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say two inmates who escaped from a minimum-security prison in Washington state have been captured without incident.
Washington Department of Corrections spokesman Jeremy Barclay said Sunday that 30-year-old Richard Harvell and 26-year-old Sage Bear were arrested about 6 miles away from Cedar Creek Corrections Center in a rugged forest.
Officials say the pair scaled a 10- to 12-foot (3- to 3.66-meter) razor-wire fence to flee Saturday night, and they will be treated for minor injuries they received during the escape.
Barclay says he has no other details about the escape or capture. He says corrections officials will investigate and question the two, then present the review to prosecutors for possible charges.
