Tattooed inmate escapes Pike Co work center


McCOMB, Miss. (AP) — A man serving seven years for burglary, identity theft and credit card fraud in Jones County has escaped from the Pike County Community Work Center in McComb.

Mississippi Department of Corrections spokeswoman Tara Booth says authorities are investigating how 22-year-old Richard Glen Maples escaped late Saturday.

He's described as 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, with green eyes, brown hair, and tattoos including the initials "RG" with flames on his left arm, a clown and five-pointed star on one hand, and the words "slick Rick" across both hands.

He was last seen wearing the inmate uniform: green-and-white striped pants and a white shirt with "MDOC Convict" on the back.

Booth says anyone who has seen or has information about Maples should contact local law enforcement or the corrections department at 662.745.6611.

Do you think the city of Meridian should aggressively enforce the city's code enforcement laws on litter, abandoned homes and overgrown lots by issuing tickets and stiff fines?
