An inmate serving time for burglary and possession of a controlled substance escaped from North Idaho Correctional Institution Friday night.
Warden Jim Rehder said Cameron D. Hayworth, 19, of the Pocatello area, escaped from the prison’s gym area sometime after 7 p.m. Friday, the last time he was seen.
No vehicles were spotted in the area at the time of the escape.
Hayworth was wearing a light gray jacket, green pants, green shirt and green stocking cap. He is 5-feet 9-inches tall and 165 pounds, with blue eyes and blond hair.
Hayworth would have been eligible for probation in the next 90 days, Rehder said.
However, there also were pending felony charges against Hayworth in Utah concerning writing of bad checks, the warden said, which “may have made him a little nervous.” xxxx
