East Feliciana inmate escapes

East Feliciana Parish sheriff’s deputies are looking for a state prison inmate who escaped from his work-release job site Monday morning.

Frankie New, 40, formerly of 10426 Jack Torres Road, Maringouin, left Elam’s Auto Service and Body Shop on La. 10 in Jackson about 8 a.m., sheriff’s Detective Don McKey said.

New was in state custody on a simple burglary conviction and was scheduled for release in March 2014, McKey said.

Another state inmate assigned to the East Feliciana Parish work-release program, Glen R. Carroll III, 21, left his job site near Amite last week, but the U.S. Marshals Service arrested him Friday in Denham Springs.
