3 inmates escape from detention center in Louisiana
NATCHITOCHES - Authorities are searching for three inmates who escaped from a detention center in Louisiana.
The Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Office said in a news release that 34-year-old Willie E. Ethridge, 24-year-old Michael Elliot and 35-year-old Walshea Mitchell escaped from one of the dorms Saturday night and then apparently jumped over two rolls of razor-wire fence.
Deputies say the inmates weren't armed at the time of the escape, but they should be considered dangerous.
Ethridge was serving time until 2037 for one count of attempted second-degree murder and two counts of armed robbery. Elliot was sentenced on theft charges and Mitchell was serving time for armed robbery with a weapon and attempted armed robbery.
It's unclear how the men escaped.
