A Chicago man is among three federal prisoners being sought after they bolted from a detention center near the southern Illinois town of Ullin.
Among the missing men is 35-year-old Rodney Brown of Alton, who was being held on a weapons charge. Twenty-eight-year-old drug defendant Thomas Glaab of Anna and 35-year-old accused illegal immigrant Miguel Robles-Moya of Chicago also are missing.
They escaped either late Tuesday night or early today, U.S. Marshal Don Slazinik told the Chicago Tribune. They were wearing institutional jumpsuits at the time of their escape but have since discarded them.
Marshals say the men are considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information about the men should call U.S. Marshals at 618-482-9336.
