Inmate Turns Himself Back In To Atoka Co. Prison

Posted:
ATOKA COUNTY, OK -- The Department of Corrections says an escaped prisoner has turned himself back in to a minimum security prison unit in Atoka County.

On Saturday, a routine count led to the discovery that an inmate had escaped from the prison.

Chance Andrews, 42, was not present during a 5 p.m. count of all inmates at the Mack Alford Correctional Center, Department of Corrections spokesman Jerry Massie said. Massie said he turned himself in around 11 p.m.

According to the prison, Andrews is in the minimum security yard which does not have a fence, so he may have just walked away.

Andrews is serving a 20-year sentence and had about 1300 days remaining on his sentence, warden assistant Trent Bourland said.

DOC records show he was convicted in 2008 on several charges out of Oklahoma County, including car theft, robbery, forgery, and resisting arrest.
