KELO William Calkins Roy Hampton inmates escape

Authorities are searching for two escaped inmates, who are also accused drug dealers. 

The search centers around the county’s community correction center on Russell Street, just across from the events center.  

50-year-old William Calkins was in jail on burglary charges, but a background check shows police arrested him for numerous drug charges earlier this summer.  45-year-old Roy Hampton was behind bars for drugs.

We searched our archives and it turns out Hampton’s case goes back to 2016, when police arrested him and three others at a Sioux Falls motel where they found drugs and a grenade.
