OKLAHOMA (KSLA) - UPDATE: Aaron Paul Victory Jr. and Bradley Cherry, who escaped from an Oklahoma correctional center on Nov. 12 were both brought back into custody by U.S. Marshalls and McCurtain County deputies Tuesday, Nov. 16, around 11 p.m.


Multiple law enforcement agencies are searching for two inmates who escaped from Dick Conner Correctional Center in Hominy, Okla., on Sunday, Nov. 12.

The U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) has offered a $2,500 reward each for information leading to the arrest of Aaron Paul Victory Jr., 25, and Bradley Cherry, 25. Prison officials stated the last time the inmates were seen was around 6 p.m. Sunday on camera but were not discovered to be missing until around 9:50 p.m.

The Pushmataha County Sheriff’s Office said they were made aware of the escape during the early morning hours of Nov. 13. A deputy located the vehicle in Pushmataha County. They were then involved in a high-speed chase that ended in McCurtain County. After that, the suspects got out and ran.

A Facebook post from the Hominy Police Department at 3:46 a.m. stated, “We have been advised that Pushmataha County in southeast Oklahoma was in pursuit with the vehicle that was suspected to be involved (in the escape). Pushmataha got the vehicle stopped and the driver in custody, two males ran from the vehicle and a foot pursuit ensued, the two males are still at large at this time. The driver that is in custody has confirmed with Law Enforcement that the two males that ran from the vehicle are the two escaped inmates. Law Enforcement in southeast Oklahoma are still actively searching for the two.”
