Prison escape is short lived

He escaped from lockdown at the Hattieville prison, but Owen Parham’s flight to freedom was short-lived. Around seven this morning, shift supervisors who had just reported for duty, discovered Parham missing while making routine checks. It is not known how the twenty-seven year old managed to walk away from the facility undetected, but late this afternoon authorities at Hattieville, acting on a tip, were able to recapture Parham not far from the prison. Parham is serving a two-year sentence for handling stolen goods, but that sentence is expected to be increased when he is charged for escape.
