Default Stokes unit escape attempt prevented

Texas Department of Justice

Some of our followers in the Beaumont area may already be familiar with rumors of an escape at the Stiles Unit there.
Thanks to the outstanding diligence of the staff and Correctional Officers at the Stiles Unit an escape attempt was foiled earlier today.

Here's another article about the attempted breakout:

Prisoner caught in alleged attempt to escape Beaumont unit

A Beaumont prison was on lockdown after corrections officers thwarted an escape attempt, officials said Monday.

After getting word of the suspected plot earlier in the day, staff searched the facility and found materials that could be used to make a dummy along with "other paraphernalia" that could aid in a break-out.
