Charles Smith, Lance Battreal, and Mark Booher Trying To Be Rabbits On The Run?
And the town was searching every where for the rabbits on the run! So far, the rabbits have not been too successful. Three inmates escaped from the Indiana State Prison. By Monday afternoon, Charles Smith, 48, a convicted killer was caught near the vacation home of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley. Dailey's bodyguard held him at gun point until the police arrive. (Don't mess with Chicago Bear fans, they shoot back.) Smith was probably happy to be turned over to the Grand Beach Police instead of facing the wrath of an irate security guard.
Authorities warned the public to stay inside since a convicted murder and a rapist were still on the lose. The three convicts escaped from the prison through a tunnel system underneath the penitentiary. Ironically, Dailey's vacation home is eight miles from the penitentiary and has it's own security.
Still on the run, Lance Battreal, left, is a convicted rapist. Charles Smith, center is caught. Mark Booher (46), another convicted murderer, is still on the run. Booher is from New Castle, Indiana. He was also was spotted in Grand Beach. A woman in Grand Beach saw two men in her driveway and called police. But they have yet to be caught.
Convicted rapist, Lance Battreal is a 45 year old from Rockport, Indiana.
Indiana Department of Correction officials said the men were discovered missing about 10 a.m. Sunday. The convicts escaped by getting past bars in the tunnels and pipe chases under the grounds of the Michigan City prison. Two of the inmates did maintenance work in the prison's tunnel system. The three were in the same housing unit at the time of their escape. All three started serving time in the late 1990s. All three faced at least 30 more years behind bars. Now it will be longer...
