Minnesota corrections officials say two teens who had gone missing from the Red Wing juvenile prison are back in custody, KARE 11 reports.
The two inmates – a 16-year-old male in for assault and a 17-year-old male in for burglary – did not appear for a daily head count at the 123-year-old facility Monday morning. The pair was picked up by Goodhue County deputies outside Red Wing after they got a tip from a citizen, KARE says.
A facility spokesman had noted that Red Wing is a minimum security facility and that inmates are rated as a very low risk to the community.
Constructed in 1889, the facility on 1079 Highway 292 provides treatment, education, and transition services for about 125 serious and chronic male juvenile offenders, according to the facility's website.
