On April 22, two inmates escaped from the St. Louis City Justice Center in downtown St. Louis by using a handmade rope, breaking a window and climbing down the outside of the building.

Both inmates were later captured.

Now, one of the guards on duty at the Justice Center during the time of the escape, Mori Farrell, has warrants against him related to the incident.

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department details his warrants in a press release:

On April 28, 2011, the Circuit Attorney’s Office issued warrants against Mori Farrell, a 51-year-old black male of the 4800 block of Riverview for Five (5) counts Forgery, two (2) counts Permitting Escape and one (1) count Making a False Declaration. The warrants were issued relative to the escape from custody that occurred at the Justice Center on 4/22.

The release also says bond for Farrell was set at $20,000 or 10 percent cash.
