Where did they escape from?

U.S. Marshals Office seeking 3 escapees

By John Diedrich of the Journal Sentinel

Jan. 7, 2010 3:14 p.m. | The U.S. Marshals Service is looking for three federal prisoners who escaped from an Illinois detention center this week: Rodney Lamont Brown, Thomas Artin Glaab and Miguel Robles-Moya.

Brown was being held on federal charges as a felon in possession of a weapon; Glaab was being held on charges of possession of methamphetamine; and Robles-Moya was being held on immigration charges.

The fugitives are all considered armed and dangerous. They are described as:

• Rodney Brown, 35, is a black male with black hair and brown eyes who is 5 feet 7 inches and 165 pounds. His last known address was in Alton, Ill. Brown has been arrested before in Milwaukee and may be in the area, according to officials.

• Thomas Glaab, 28, is a white male with brown hair and brown eyes who is 6 feet 3 inches and 180 pounds. His last known address was in Anna, Ill.

Here’s what concerns me. The article does not state which facility the escapees escaped from. I do know that there is a Thompson Correctional facility in Illinois—which happens to be where the Guantanamo Bay detainees are scheduled to be transferred to. So, will we need to worry about this with potential terrorists in that facility?
