The three juvenile escapees have been identified as, 17-year old, TyJuana Lafitte, 17-year old, Jeremiah Durham, and 15-year old, Na’varaya Lane. The three inmates were allegedly driven away from the facility by 21-year old, Victoria Tune, the corrections officer who helped them escape.

The four were reportedly tracked down when police found Tune’s car parked outside of a motel in Houston. Police waited for the four to return back to the hotel, then arrested them when they arrived. An unnamed relative had reportedly driven the four to the motel.

Lane was reportedly serving time for attempted second-degree murder. Durham was serving time for armed robbery. Lafitte was serving time for attempted first-degree murder. They are all scheduled to be extradited back to Louisiana and hit with new charges for the escape. Tune will reportedly be charged with three counts of accessory to simple escape.
