A man who is alleged to have escaped from the Casper re-entry center has been taken into custody in Monroe County, Georgia. Also arrested was a woman that is suspected to have assisted the escapee.
According to officials with the Monroe County, Georgia Sheriff’s Office, 29-year-old Richard Fountaine and 25-year-old Kimberly Belcher have been confirmed as “in custody.” The Sheriff’s office declined to release any further information surrounding the arrests.
Natrona County paperwork says that Fountaine is believed to have climbed a wall and a fence at C.R.C. the night of December 28th, and fled the area in a vehicle.
Natrona County Deputies said that after an investigation, they had probable cause to believe that Fountaine had help with Belcher, and that the two might be together.
According to the Wyoming Department of Justice, Fountaine had been sentenced in Park County back in June of 2017 for burglary.
The pair were spotted in the Monroe County, Georgia area; prompting coverage from Georgia media, where area sheriffs advised that the pair could be dangerous.
All of those cited or arrested are presumed innocent until convicted in a court of law. Charges are subject to change following official filings from the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office.
