Last juvenile escapee from Arkansas detention center turns himself in to Bryant police

The mother of the last juvenile who escaped from the detention center on Feb. 3, says the 14-year-old has turned himself without an incident on Sunday.

The mother of the last juvenile who escaped from the detention center on Feb. 3, says the 14-year-old has turned himself without an incident on Sunday.

Keaton McGee escaped a state youth detention center in Alexander last Sunday around 2:30 p.m. by climbing on top of a low roof and scaling over the razor-wire fence.

Police confirm that he will not be returning to the Alexander facility.

Prior to his capture, Sergeant Crowson blames miscommunication between departments on who was going to take over. He said, "State [Police] apparently thought we were going to do it. We thought state was going to do it because typically they would handle something like this." But Bryant PD decided to take the lead anyway.

Bryant police say that there were a total of six incarcerated juveniles outside of McGee, that attempted to escape on Feb. 3.

Three of the youth were found before escaping, while the other three were captured at a Bryant Walmart.

Authorities have not revealed any other details on the McGee escape at this time.

This is a developing story. It will be updated as more information is released.
