2 inmates escape from federal prison in Duluth

| No Comments

Two inmates serving time for fraud in a low-security federal prison in Duluth escaped Saturday, KSTP reports.

Michael Krzyzaniak of Minneapolis, and Gerald Greenfield of Bloomington were discovered missing Saturday night around 10 p.m. during a nightly inmate count. Krzyzaniak, 64, was serving a 12-year sentence for wire fraud and tax evasion, and was expected to be released in 2022. Greenfield, 67, was serving a four-year sentence for conspiracy to commit money laundering, and had a release date Nov. 2, 2015 the Star Tribune reports.

Prison authorities said they discovered the two men missing around the same time, although it is unknown whether or not the two men escaped together. Kryzyzaniak's father Joseph was unaware of his son's plans for escape, and said that he sounded fine during a phone call two days ago. Anyone with information on the two are encouraged to call the U.S. Marshals Service.

The prison, located on the former Duluth Air Force Base, holds inmates to the "honor system," authorities said. There are no walls surrounding the facility, where inmates sleep in dorm-like rooms and have access to a gym, movie theater, and a dining hall with a salad bar.
