ALBANY, Ore. (AP) — Three teens who escaped from the MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility Sunday have been arrested in Albany after being located by the Oregon State Police, officials said.
The Oregon Youth Authority says at about 2 p.m. Wednesday, the escapees were located in a vehicle in Lebanon by detectives, The Democrat-Herald reported.
The teens fled in the vehicle and were pursued by law enforcement, officials said. Near Albany, law enforcement laid down devices that flatten a vehicle’s tires which disabled their car.
One of the teens ran but was caught and arrested a short distance away. The other two teens stayed in the vehicle and were taken into custody. Officials said no one was injured.
Preston Andrizzi, 19, of Albany; Anthony Fitz-Henry, 18, of Keizer; and Christian Goin, 17, of Albany were in custody in Linn County Wednesday afternoon.
The teens escaped from MacLaren at about 12:45 a.m. Sunday after allegedly assaulting a MacLaren staff member, stealing keys and escaping through a hole cut in the facility’s perimeter fence.
The staff member went to a hospital, received medical attention and was released. The hole in the perimeter fence has been repaired.
