Two “very dangerous” inmates are on the loose after escaping from a Florida prison early Monday morning, according to police. Rondell Reed and Leviticus Taylor were missing from the maximum-security cell they shared when a 5 a.m. routine headcount was done.
The prison went into lockdown and their red jumpsuits were found during the search. Officers believe they escaped through a vent in their cell, but also think they had help on the outside.
"They likely had some type of rod that they used to break the locks off the secured doors in the hallway," said Indian River County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jeff Luther. "They then climbed over the fences around the prison that are topped with razor wire."
At this point, it is unknown whether or not the men are armed. Reed is 52 years old and 5-foot-7. Taylor is 25 years old with a cropped haircut despite the dreadlocks in his mug shot.
Both prisoners are facing first-degree murder charges among others, and are considered incredibly dangerous. Up to $1,000 is being offered in exchange for information that could lead to an arrest.
