1 in 4 who escaped US federal prison satellite camp surrenders

HOPEWELL, Va. †

One of four inmates who escaped from a satellite camp of the US federal prison in Virginia over the weekend has turned himself in, officials said Monday.

Kevin Connolly, a supervisor with the US Marshals Service Capital Regional Fugitive Task Force, said Tavaraes Lajuane Graham showed up early Sunday at the satellite camp of the Petersburg Federal Correctional Complex in Hopewell, Virginia, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported.

Inmates Corey Branch, Lamonte Rashawn Willis and Kareem Allen Shaw are still at large. Investigators are following up on the tracks of the remaining escapees, Connolly said. The US Marshals Service is offering a reward of up to $2,000 per escapee for information leading to their arrest, he said.

The four men were found missing at the satellite camp in Hopewell, Virginia around 1:45 a.m. Saturday, the Federal Bureau of Prisons said in a news release Saturday morning. They left around 10 p.m. Friday, “so they had a few hours before they were discovered,” Connolly said.

Agency officials have not released details about how the detainees escaped from the minimum-security facility that houses 185 male offenders, but said an internal investigation has been launched.

Graham, 44, was sentenced to 10 years in the Eastern District of North Carolina for possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine and 28 grams or more of cocaine base, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking offense.

Branch, 41, was sentenced to more than 13 years in the Eastern District of Virginia for possession with intent to distribute fentanyl and felons in possession of a firearm. Willis, 30, was sentenced to 18 years in the Eastern District of Virginia for possessing and concealing a stolen firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Shaw, 46, was sentenced to more than 16 years in the western district of Virginia for conspiracy to distribute a measurable amount of heroin.
