Prison escapee in NW Wash. still at large
Monday, August 8, 2011
FORKS, Wash. (AP) -- A prisoner is still at large after escaping from a minimum-security work camp near Forks in northwest Washington over the weekend.
Prison spokesman Chad Lewis said Monday morning that 27-year-old Darby Maguire was seen around 7:30 p.m. Saturday when he and other offenders headed to a track outside the facility's perimeter fence for recreation time.
Staff at the Olympic Corrections Center realized a prisoner was missing at 8:20 p.m. Saturday. The prison was locked down, and officials are determining how Maguire escaped.
Maguire was convicted of third-degree assault and second-degree robbery in Whatcom County. He began his sentence in January 2010. His term was scheduled to end July 2014.
In June, a 39-year-old James Russell tried to escape from the Olympic Corrections Center but was caught the next day.
