MOBILE, Alabama -- Two inmates who escaped on Monday from an Eight Mile area facility will be transferred to the state’s Fountain prison in Atmore, an Alabama Department of Corrections official said.
Cody Wood, 22, and Carlton Beech, 22, escaped from the Mobile Community Based Facility about 12:10 a.m., according to a news release. They were recaptured about 1:45 p.m. Monday in Saraland in a wooded area behind the home of Beech’s mother, according to Brain Corbett, state corrections spokesman.
No injuries were reported during the recapture, he said.
Corbett said he did not know whether Beech’s mother was at the home.
He said that Wood and Beech were being taken to the Fountain Correctional Facility.
The 2 men — clad in their white inmate uniforms — fled the Eight Mile center and got into a white sports utility vehicle parked not far away on Interstate 65.
Wood was serving a 10-year sentence out of Mobile County for second-degree robbery and first-degree attempted burglary. That sentence was scheduled to expire Aug. 27, 2013.
Beech was serving a 15-year sentence out of Mobile County for second-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, first-degree receiving stolen property, and second-degree receiving stolen property. That sentence was scheduled to expire March 7, 2014.
Wood had been at the center since May 19 and Beech had been there since May 25, Corbett said. Many of the center’s inmate work at jobs outside the center.
Corbett said that both men were housed in the section where they could work only for governmental entities.
