SAVAGES… INMATES ESCAPE AND CAUSING MAJOR TROUBLE!!
According to a federal complaint, Inmates have been escaping from the U.S. Penitentiary in southeast Atlanta and returning with contraband.
The prisoners are allegedly sneaking out through a hole in a fence and returning with items like liquor, cigarettes and cellphones to sell to other prisoners.
Some documents said the inmates would get into cars parked and leave the facility.
The feds rushed in on escapees after an Atlanta police officer spotted four men dressed in all gray, wearing black ski masks, and gloves near the perimeter of the prison in January of 2013.
Last month, officials said they put a camera up to monitor the grounds before handing the video over to the feds.
Last Friday, one inmates ruined it for everybody when he was caught by the authorities. The authorities caught the inmate trying to get out of the prison, which led to the federal complaint filing the next day and prison guards to expose all the other inmates that have been escaping for months. Nearby residents said they do not feel safe knowing that inmates are escaping.
A nearby resident said, “I don’t know how we are going to be safe or how I’m going to try to keep us safe, I think they need to step it up and they owe us an explanation as to how they’re escaping.”
the resident lives in an apartment complex across the street from the prison on McDonough Boulevard.
The case is still under investigation.
