(Wyo)-Second Wyoming Escapee Caught In Texas

By: John Axtell Posted at: 10/02/2019 10:50 AM
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The second of the two inmates who escaped from the Wyoming Honor Conservation Camp in Newcastle a week ago Sunday has been captured in Texas.
     The Wyoming Department of Corrections officials say Robert Simpson was arrested Tuesday in Dallas, two days after Jason Green was arrested in the Dallas suburb of Mesquite.

     Authorities believe after escaping from the Conservation Camp on Sept 22 that Simpson and Green stole a Newcastle city truck and drove it that night to Laramie, where they likely stole another vehicle.
     Green began serving a 3-to-8 year term for larceny conviction in 2015  while Simpson was sentenced in 2012 to 5 to 15 years for aggravated burglary with a weapon.
