October 31, 2007


Two inmates who escaped Sunday from El Dorado Correctional Facility and a former prison employee were apprehended this morning in New Mexico, according to prison spokesman Dale Call.

Authorities said the former corrections officer, Amber Goff, 23, played a role in helping the two inmates, Steven A. Ford and Jesse L. Bell, escape from a recreation yard.

Bell, 33, is serving sentences from Finney, Leavenworth and Cowley counties for forgery, burglary, battery and escape. Ford, 26, is serving a sentence from Wyandotte County for robbery and indecent liberties.

The reports on this matter indicated the woman had left behind directions for driving to Canada. Either their sense of direction is really bad, or they were TRYING to throw off those whom they knew would be looking for them.
