Four Inmates Still On The Run After Federal Prison Break

The Federal Bureau of Prisons issued a news release that four inmates are still on the run from the Federal Correctional Complex Petersburg, Virginia on Saturday. Inmates Corey Branch, 41, Tavares Lajuane Graham, 44, Lamonte Rashawn Willis, 30, and Kareem Allen Shaw, 46, were reported missing from the satellite camp at 1:45 A.M.

The sentences for the escaped inmates were as follows:

Corey Branch: 160 months for intent to distribute fentanyl and felony possession of a firearm.

Tavares Lajuane Graham: 120 months for cocaine possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more, possession of 28 grams or more of cocaine base, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Lamonte Rashawn Willis: 216 months for possession and concealment of a stolen firearm and felony possession of a firearm.

Kareem Allen Shaw: 194 months for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a measurable quantity of heroin.

Officials say that an internal investigation has begun and the FBI and U.S. Marshals Service were notified.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons hasn’t said much more about the escape other than describing it as a “walk away.” The Federal Correctional Complex Petersburg, VA houses 675 total inmates. 185 of those inmates are housed at the satellite camp where the inmates escaped.

“Walk away” and “minimum-security.” Checks out.

A 2020 Statista report notes that 2,353 prison inmates escaped in 2018.

What do you think?

  1. Hello there Ms. Starchild, I served 2.5 years in 7 Federal Prisons for Securities & Tax Fraud. I wrote a book about “How it Works ” Inside a Federal Prison along with Stories of my $14.1 Civil Law Suit by the SEC, and eventually my Indictment, Pre-Trial and my time in what I call Prisonyland (including as I said how it works). Then of course stories from the inside / transit on Con-Air, transit on Buses, etc….

    All in all it’s never over, after you get out there is Halfway House then Supervised Release, it’s a “Slow Boat to China”.

    Welcome to Prisonyland willl be out soon. I will also have a Podcasts which will be YouTube videos, lots of Interviews etc…

    Great article as you can just walk awayfrom some facilities however living a life of hiding is no way to live!

    Keep up the great work I’m very interested in this statistic and where you got it “2020 Statista report notes that 2,353 prison inmates escaped in 2018” and other sources similar. Did you see the story yesterday about the guys that really escaped from Alcatraz?

    I have daily Google Alerts for Crypto Scams, Crypto Arrests, PPP Fraud, Insurrection Arrests etc. That’s how I found you. I’m not much of a Journalist I’m more of a Promoter, Speaker, Trainer etc…

    Perhaps you would have some ideas for me? I’m just getting all my writing put together (the stories) and looking to bring in Investment so I move this Project online & forward ASAP. It’s going to be my largest Personal Art Project ever. There are.just literally SO many Scams going on its Crazy!

    Let me know if you’d like to help give me some short cuts.

    Thank you!
