new jail plans to improve security as police search for inmate

Right now, deputies in Dane County are still searching for an inmate who escaped from a jail facility Friday evening.

Officials say Perion Carreon, 18,ran away from the Ferris Center, where he was serving a work release sentence for stealing a van and escaping an officer with several other teenagers.

It's a minimum security jail facility, where inmates can leave for work, school or appointments, with approval from authorities. But they cannot come and go as they please.

"Being on Huber is a privilege. It's not a right. It's a privilege. And when you violate that privilege, we take it very serious and so do the courts," said Sheriff Dave Mahoney.

In this case, the sheriff says Carreon will be charged with a felony when he's eventually arrested.
