Jail Break

March 4, 2002, 6:03 PM

Jail Break
It was a moment of opportunity for two men who escaped from the jail in Marshall, Minnesota over the weekend. The men were being moved from the library to their jail cells to eat when they decided to make run for it. They were able to run away from guards and out unlocked jail doors.
They were loose for 6-hours, before they returned to the hands fo the law.

The walls are supposed to keep criminals inside, but Saturday afternoon, authorities say 27 year old Christopher Haney and 21 year old Aren Hatton ran from guards and escaped. Police searched the city, as one family abruptly found out. "There was a knock on the door, two policeman a woman and a guy and guy just like I don't know, took his gun on me and told me to get on the ground."

Rall's sister Jessica was also in the apartment. "I was sleeping and he kept asking me, where are they, where are they. He had a gun pointed at me."

Jessica believed the police stopped there, because her fiance's in the jail. "They told, said that there was a lot of phone calls, from jail to here so they figured we knew who the people were."

Sherriff Don Stokke says they were just searching areas where the suspects were sighted. It turns out police were close. The suspects had been just blocks away. Haney and Hatton went into an apartment here at the 100th block of 5th street in Marshall. They tied up the resident used a phone and took off. Police believe the phone was used to call Jeffrey Goodmund and Sheena Roe. They picked up the escapees, and the four headed to Sioux Falls.

Lt. Nick Boschee says, "Basically, or patrol officer stopped a vehicle that contained two escapees from the Lyon County Minnesota Jail as well as two other individuals."

All four suspects will be held in Sioux Falls until further notice. What's being done to prevent this from happening again? Sherriff Stokke says procedures at the jail will be changed. He's still looking at the specifics.
