BELFAST, Maine — Police were searching Sunday for two inmates who apparently walked away from the minimum-security Bolduc Correctional Facility in Warren on Saturday night.
Prison officials say Arden Shaw, 36, and Robert Fogg, 28, last were seen at the Bolduc facility at about 7 p.m. Saturday. Both men were in prison for burglary and due to be released in 2013.
Capt. Rick Ivey said Sunday that neither man is believed to be dangerous.
Fogg is described as a white male, 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing approximately 165 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. Fogg has a tattoo reading “WHITE TRASH” on his neck.
Shaw is described as a white male, 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing approximately 155 pounds with blue eyes and blond or strawberry-blond hair cut very short. Shaw has a tattoo of a cross on his left hand and one of a skull on his chest.
Both men likely were wearing standard-issue jeans and blue denim shirts at the time of their escape, according to prison officials.
Located near the Maine State Prison in Warren, Bolduc is a minimum-security correctional facility housing up to 150 inmates. Because Bolduc is a low-security prison, it does not have fences on its campuslike grounds.
“This is a place of trust, and they violated that,” Ivey said.
Ivey said an alert was issued to law enforcement agencies throughout the state to be on the lookout for the pair.
