WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) — An inmate has escaped from a minimum-security prison in southern Kansas.
The Kansas Department of Corrections says 37-year-old Bradley Wayne Struble was last seen about midnight Wednesday during the prison’s inmate count. The Winfield Correctional Facility is a minimum-security facility where inmates are supervised, but the grounds are not fenced in.
The department says Struble remained at large Thursday afternoon.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Struble is serving a sentence for violating parole. His most recent criminal conviction was in 2004 for battering a correctional officer.
He was sent to Winfield in February and was due to be released in October.
