Report of inmate escape from Montford Unit was false alarm

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Shortly before 3 p.m. on Thursday, Lubbock Police were alerted of a possible inmate escape from the Montford prison unit.

Officials from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice say all the inmates are accounted for and no one has escaped.

This all started when the prison was alerted that someone left the Montford Unit in a white pick-up truck with New Mexico plates. Police were given the description of the truck to locate while prison officials did a head count of their inmates.

About 45 minutes later officials confirmed that all prisoners were there and there had not been an escapee.
