Inmate climbed basketball hoop, scaled fence to escape, police say

Inmate climbed basketball hoop, scaled fence to escape, police say

Police have been searching the area of the ex-girlfriend's home but have yet to find James Walker Morales, who escaped from Wyatt Detention Facility in Central Falls, Rhode Island on Saturday night. Two individuals assigned to the area Morales escaped from have been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an internal investigation.

The U.S. Marshals Service is again asking for the public's help today.

Massachusetts State Police believe that after escaping, Morales fled north into Attleboro, where a K-9 unit was able to follow a partial trail to an I-95 overpass near the state line.

Police believe Morales stole a green Chevrolet Lumina from the parking lot of BK Mart on Washington Street in Attleboro on Saturday night. According to Marshals, Morales stole a auto from the parking lot at a BK Mart on Route One in Attleboro Saturday night.

A police source tells NBC Boston that the vehicle stolen by an escaped inmate on Sunday was found in Framingham, Massachusetts, just a block from his ex-girlfriend's house. "As the host community for a detention center holding federal detainees, we expect a high level of safety and security for our residents".

A wanted poster released last night by U.S. Marshals said Morales - who is black, 6 feet tall and has several tattoos, including one depicting an eagle on his neck - "should be considered armed and risky".

Lugo said she last saw Morales walking toward a Tedeschi convenience store.

Wrentham police said Morales is believed to be in the state of MA.

Some visitors to Wyatt Correctional Facility told FOX25 they were turned away because the facility was in lockdown Sunday morning and that no visitors would be allowed.

James Walter Morales, a 35-year-old former Army reservist and ex-employee of the Cambridge DPW, had been kept behind bars for his role in a November, 2015 gun heist at an armory in Worcester.

Authorities urge anyone who spots Morales to call 911, and those with information are asked to call U.S. Marshals at 508-368-7300.

Morales also faces child rape charges.
