Authorities are still searching for an inmate who escaped from the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) on Tuesday evening.
Deputy Director of BCF Leonard Terrence said that Hanson ‘Dirty White’ James scaled the prison’s razor wire fence to get out of the facility.
Terrence said the inmate was cleaning his maximum security unit when he made his escape.
However, this is not the first time that this same inmate escaped prison.
According to the deputy director, James, had escaped sometime before (exact date unknown) and it took the authorities two days to recapture him.
The convicted robber has been described as high-risk and dangerous, and citizens are asked to inform the authorities if they become aware of his whereabouts.
The official is warning residents particularly in Ciceron, the community where he resided before being incarcerated, not to approach or try to apprehend the prison escapee.
The security system at BCF is currently being reviewed in light of this recent prison escape.
The search for James continues.
