Two Inmates Escape from the Arizona Department of Corrections in Florence
The Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation and Reentry (ADCRR) announced on Saturday the an escape of two medium custody inmates at ASPC-Florence in Florence, Arizona.
Inmates John B. Charpiot, ADC #265660 and David T. Harmon, ADC #057610, escaped from the medium custody south unit at ASPC-Florence on Saturday.
Charpiot, a medium-custody inmate, was admitted to prison in 2011 after being convicted out of Maricopa County to serve 35 years for molestation of a child and sexual abuse.
Harmon, also a medium custody inmate housed at the south unit, was admitted to prison in 2012 after being convicted out of Maricopa County to serve a total of 100 years for kidnapping charges and second-degree burglary charges.
The inmates were not accounted for during the 8:30pm count, Saturday, January 23. They were last accounted for at the 4pm count Saturday afternoon.
This is currently ADCRR’s top priority, and all available resources are being employed to the search effort. The department has dispatched its chase teams, tracking dog teams and fugitive apprehension unit to find the fugitive inmates. Local authorities and the Arizona Department of Public Safety are also assisting in the search.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the two inmates are asked to call 911. Gov. Doug Ducey announced Sunday that anyone who provides information that leads to the inmates being caught could receive a $25,000 reward per inmate, plus $10,000 per inmate from the US Marshals Service.
“The department will not rest until these inmates have been apprehended,” the ADCRR press release said.
