A 17-year-old and an 18-year-old inmate are on the loose after escaping from Camp Glenwood, a minimum security facility in San Mateo, California. The inmates' identities are not being released at this time, and they are not considered to be armed and dangerous. The two inmates wandered away from the basketball courts on Sunday evening.
The Camp Glenwood facility houses teenagers that are typically facing “serious felonious charges in conjunction with others. Sometimes it can be a probation violation, but it can stem from other serious charges” according to Detective Rosemerry Blankswade from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. The facility accepts juveniles that volunteer to participate, and they are usually struggling with behavior, family, gangs, education or substance abuse.
The minimum security facility does not have gates or perimeters due to the fact that the inmates have volunteered to be there. Hopefully, the two boys will be apprehended quickly and without incident. This is one case that will surely change the way this facility runs.
