Duluth prison escapees arrested in Burnsville


Two convicted fraudsters from the Twin Cities that walked away from a low-security federal prison in Duluth last Saturday night have been caught.

Federal officials tell the Star Tribune that 64-year-old Michael Krzyzaniak of Minneapolis and 67-year-old Gerald Greenfield of Bloomington were arrested at a Burnsville hotel around 1 a.m. Friday.

The Duluth News Tribune reports tips lead authorities to the hotel and the two men were arrested without incident.

Krzyzaniak was serving a 12-year term for a $26 million investment scheme that targeted the rich. Greenfield was serving four years for assisting a mortgage scam with the developer of the Sexton Lofts in downtown Minneapolis.

Prisoners at the camp near the Duluth International Airport are there “on the honor system” instead of having locked cells.
