Jefferson County deputies received information that inmates from the federal complex were
escaping from the back side of the prison, crossing onto private land, picking up contraband,
and taking it back into the prison. Earlier this week, a vehicle entered onto the private property
and dropped off a large duffle bag. About two hours later an inmate ran from the prison and
was arrested heading back to the prison with the duffle bag that contained brandy, whiskey,
tobacco, snacks, fruit, and a large amount of home cooked meals. The inmate, 25-year old
Joshua Hansen, of Dallas, was booked into the Jefferson County Jail on an escape charge and
possession of marijuana.
