Law enforcement officers in St. Louis picked up two Casper Re-Entry Center escapees Monday evening, according to the Natrona County Sheriff’s Office.
Michael Robert Harvey, 26, and Erick Allen George, 33, checked out of the CRC about 8 a.m. on March 22 and never returned.
Local authorities had an indication that Harvey and George could be in the St. Louis area after the two secured jobs there, according to Lt. Gus Holbrook of the sheriff's office.
Harvey was originally sentenced out of Natrona County for third-time possession of a controlled substance. George was originally sentenced out of Sweetwater County for causing or attempting to cause bodily injury to a peace officer, according to the sheriff’s office.
The two face additional escape charges upon their return to Wyoming, Holbrook said.
