East Feliciana work-release escapee sought

CLINTON (AP) — East Feliciana Parish sheriff's deputies are looking for a state prisoner who left his work-release job at

a sawmill near Amite.

Chief Deputy Cliff Hurst told The Advocate 21-year-old Glen R. Carroll III, formerly of

Broussard,

was serving a two-year sentence for aggravated second-degree

battery and was eligible for a work-release program when he arrived

at the East Feliciana Parish Jail several weeks ago.

Hurst said deputies believe someone picked up Carroll from his job at the Paul Davis Lumber Co. on La. 16 about noon

Monday.

Before his escape, Hurst says Carroll was eligible for release from state custody in January 2014.
