Prison Escapee Possibly Hiding Out in Mesquite

One of two escaped Wyoming inmates has been caught in North Texas.

The Wyoming Department of Corrections says inmate Jason Green was apprehended Sunday in Mesquite, Texas after someone near Town East Mall called police about suspicious people in the area.

It says inmate Robert Simpson remains at large and is potentially still in the Mesquite and greater Dallas and Fort Worth area.

Simpson and Green escaped from the Wyoming Honor Conservation Camp in Newcastle on Sept. 22. It is believed the inmates stole a city truck in Newcastle and drove that night to Laramie where they may have stolen another vehicle.

Green was sentenced in 2015 to three to eight years in prison on a larceny conviction. Simpson was sentenced in 2012 to five to 15 years in prison for aggravated burglary with a weapon.

Police warn Simpson should be considered dangerous. If you think you see Simpson, call 911.
