Delaware Prison Officials: 3 Inmates Escape, 2 Caught


WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware prison officials say they have found two of three inmates who scaled a wall to escape a corrections center in Wilmington, but one is still on the loose.

The Department of Correction says the three work release inmates climbed the wall at the Plummer Community Corrections Center on Sunday night and ran off.

Two of the men were caught late Monday, but officials say they are still looking for 19-year-old Tommy Broomer, who was serving three months for violating probation after a carrying a concealed deadly weapon conviction.

Officials say 20-year-old Nycire Mills and 21-year-old Charles Hargroves were found in Wilmington and both face new charges of escape after conviction and conspiracy.

The center houses inmates who are permitted to leave to work, attend treatment sessions or seek employment.
