CCA Security Failure in Nations Capitol!

Escaped DC Inmate Headed Back to Jail

Originally found here.

D.C. police located an inmate who escaped while being transported to Greater Southeast Hospital.

The Corrections Corporation of America says 28-year-old Terrence Moore fled when he arrived at the southeast D.C. hospital around 9 a.m. Thursday.

The company said after officers opened the vehicle doors, Moore escaped and jumped into a burgundy colored Cadillac and got away with an unknown driver.

Police scoured the area and went to previous addresses and addresses of Moore's friends.

Moore was found just after 7 p.m. near Wheeler Road and 10th Place in Southeast and was arrested without incident.

Officials are investigating how Moore was able to remove his restraints.

The CCA runs the Correctional Treatment Facility where Moore, who is from Washington, was a pretrial inmate facing charges of assault with intent to kill. The facility was under lockdown.
