A Duncan, Oklahoma man pleaded guilty today to breaking out of federal prison, announced U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas Erin Nealy Cox.
Jeremy Brown, 38, who was serving time in the Big Spring Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) for a firearms offense, admits he escaped from federal custody on May 19, 2018.
According to documents filed in the case, the sister of a Big Spring FCI employee spotted Brown running across the street and jumping into a maroon Nissan Altima around 5 p.m. Suspecting she’d witnessed an escape, she snapped a photo as the car sped away, then contacted Big Spring FCI.
Officials initiated an emergency headcount and realized Brown was missing. Two days later, after a warrant had been issued for his arrest, Brown surrendered to Big Spring FCI, and was placed in the Special Housing Unit (SHU).
The driver of the getaway car, Tiffany Stone, 38, pleaded guilty to concealing a person from arrest.
The United States Marshals Service and the Big Spring Federal Correctional Institution Special Investigative Services conducted the investigation, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeff Haag prosecuted the case.
