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.

    Just destined to be locked up - three squares a day a roof over their heads and free everything

    Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum...escaping at that point is like dropping the eggs on the front step after you've walked all the way home from the grocery store.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
