Inmate escapes from JBCC

McALESTER — An inmate housed at the Jackie Brannon Correctional Center in McAlester escaped the minimum security facility early this morning.

“He is considered armed and dangerous,” said Laurie Martin, JBCC warden’s assistant.

Alvin D. Boyer, 27, was last seen at the 6:30 a.m. count, Martin said. “We did a special count at 8:30 this morning and” Boyer was not there.

“We’re working with multiple law enforcement agencies,” Martin said. “We’ve got people on the ground, on the road, and the dogs are out and trying to track him.”

Boyer began serving time at JBCC on Sept. 22, 2011, according to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections website at www.doc.state.ok.us. In July of 2011, Boyer was sentenced to serve 2,982 days for multiple firearm and drug related felony convictions. According to the DOC website, Boyer is set to be released on Nov. 26, 2018, and has a parole hearing set in January of 2014.

Boyer is covered in tattoos, Martin said. And in his Oklahoma Department of Corrections mugshot, tattoos can bee seen on Boyer’s face, under each of his eyes. Under his left eye are two teardrop tattoos, according to the website, and under his right eye is another tattoo. Boyer also has tattoos covering his neck, and those include the word “Kracker,” on the right side of his neck and a swastika symbol.

If anyone has any information on Boyer’s whereabouts, call JBCC at 918-421-3339 or the McAlester Police Department at 918-423-1212 or the Pittsburg County Sheriff’s Office at 918-423-5858.
