BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Authorities are searching for two
inmates who escaped from the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
Deputies are searching today for
23-year-old Jeremy Ricard and 26-year-old Leonard Thomas.
Deputies say Ricard was arrested in March and booked with
unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Thomas was being held on
charges resisting arrest, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and
felon in possession of a firearm.
Sheriff's office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks said the men
were reported missing at around 10 p.m. Tuesday.
Hicks said both men were working in the kitchen of the prison.
She said it's believed they went out to the back dock loading area
where they climbed a fence.
