| No Comments

Two men who escaped from the Duluth Federal Prison Camp were arrested Friday, the Star Tribune said.

Gerald Greenfield and Michael Krzyzaniak fled the prison camp on March 30, and were found at a hotel in Burnsville Friday, the Pioneer Press said. Tips had led authorities to the hotel, the Pioneer Press said.

The inmates were discovered missing the night of March 30 during a routine head count at the prison, the Star Tribune said. The prison camp has no fence and operates on the honor system, the Star Tribune said.

They checked into the hotel, about 175 miles away from the prison camp, Sunday under an alias, the Star Tribune said.

The two were arrested on federal warrants of escape from custody, and booked at the Ramsey County Jail, the Pioneer Press said.

Both were booked at the prison camp on fraudulent charges, the Pioneer Press said.
