McKermit Angel Casiano Velasco, known as McKermit Casiano, is back in the hands of law enforcement. He escaped from the Carteret Correctional Center Sunday evening where he was serving a four month sentence.
Authorities thought he might be headed towards Brunswick County where he had previously been charged with rape, robbery, and kidnapping. When officals in Brunswick County learned Casiano was on the loose, they stepped up patrols.
Annette Cortez was also arrested with Casiano. Her charges are pending.
