2 Escaped Rapides Parish Inmates Recaptured
Two Rapides Parish inmates who walked away from a detention center have been recaptured.
The sheriff's office told The Town Talk Thursday that both 48-year-old Ronald Vantress and 27-year-old Raymond Weston escaped Wednesday and were found and taken into custody without incident. Each has been booked on a charge of simple escape.
Weston, of Alexandria, was serving time for narcotics convictions while Vantress, of New Orleans, was serving time for a felony theft conviction.
The sheriff's office did not provide details on how the men escaped.
