Situation Resolved After Inmates Steal Keys at Prison

Situation Resolved After Inmates Steal Keys at Prison

The Arkansas Department of Correction said the three officers were held in the area the prisoners had controlled.

Bill Sadler, an Arkansas State Police spokesman, said the agency is investigating any criminal activity that may have occurred in the lead-up to the situation or during it. The situation came to a peaceful end just before 7:00 p.m.

Last month, a guard fired three warning shots at the same prison after two guards and an inmate were attacked in a solitary confinement area.

Arkansas correction officials say they're in contact with inmates who snatched keys from three correctional officers at a maximum security prison in Arkansas and are holding the officers in an area where the prisoners now control the keys and doors.

The six inmates involved in the disturbance have been moved to Varner Supermax Unit.

ADC told reporters that today's six inmate breakout occurred in a separate recreational area than the July 22 incident. Two correctional officers were assaulted as they attempted to handcuff the two escapees, who left their cells and stabbed another inmate after they breached his cell. "We are staying outside until they are ready for ASP assistance". "One inmate, who was not involved in the initial disturbance but did sustain injuries, is being transported to an area hospital in stable condition", a corrections department statement said Monday night.

Department of Correction spokesman Solomon Graves said the prison was placed under lockdown before the staff members were released from the area Monday evening.

"Those conversations are proceeding in a positive direction", Graves said. They suffered minor injuries, including bruises and scrapes, he said. According to his LinkedIn page, Burl became warden of Tucker Max in April 2015 after spending five years as warden at the East Arkansas Regional Unit.
