PUEBLO – Authorities are looking for two inmates who escaped a minimum-security federal prison camp in southern Colorado.
The Pueblo Chieftain reports 35-year-old Jose Rodriguez and 42-year-old Raul Guzman were noticed missing during Wednesday morning’s inmate count at the Federal Bureau of Prisons facility south of Florence.
Prison spokeswoman Kim Gemplar says the U.S. Marshals Service, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies have been notified. Investigators have not said how the men escaped.
Rodriguez was serving a six-year sentence out of Kansas, and Guzman was serving a 10-year sentence out of Northern California. Both were convicted of distributing methamphetamine.
Rodriguez was scheduled to be released in April, and Guzman was set to be released in 2027.
The camp is one of four prisons at the Florence Correctional Complex.
