    Inmate escapes Atwater maximum security prison

    Inmate escapes U.S. Penitentiary in Atwater | Merced Sun-Star


    Guaymar Cabrera-Hernandez, 26, a Hispanic male with black hari, brown eyes, 5-feet 3-inches tall, and about 125 pounds, escaped the U.S. Penitentiary in Atwater the night of Friday, May 12, 2017. Shanker, Vikaas - Merced U.S. Penitentiary Atwater

    An inmate who escaped the maximum security side of the Atwater penitentiary Friday night was on the run for at least four hours before prison officials notified local authorities, Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke confirmed.

    Inmate Guaymar Cabrera-Hernandez, 26, was discovered missing from the prison at 8:30 p.m. Friday, according to a news release by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

    “Had they contacted us sooner, we might have had a much different result,” Warnke said, noting that prison officials contacted his office at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

    Prison officials didn’t respond to repeated requests on how Cabrera-Hernandez escaped, and why it took four hours to notify the Sheriff’s Office.

    Cabrera-Hernandez is a Hispanic male with black hair and brown eyes. He is 5-feet three-inches tall and weighs about 125 pounds. According to a notice from the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Cabrera-Hernandez is a Guatemalan national.

    Warnke said his office helped with the search with two aircrafts, and a bloodhound.

    “It was pointed out to me during the flight that he climbed over the fence on the north side of the prison, and that he was probably injured,” Warnke told the Sun-Star.

    Cabrera-Hernandez was still on the run as of noon Saturday.

    “This is going to be like looking for a needle in a haystack,” Warnke said.

    The prison was secured after Cabrera-Hernandez was found missing, the news release states, but an immediate internal and external search of the prison yielded no results.

    Cabrera-Hernandez is currently serving a 115-month sentence from the District of Columbia and Northern District of West Virginia for prisoner escape, unarmed carjacking, assault with intent to commit robbery, destruction of property less than $1,000 and attempted escape.

    This story will be updated throughout the day.

    The sheriff obviously doesn't understand that "not where he's supposed to be" doesn't necessarily mean "escaped to the outside".

    It takes a solid 3-4 hours to do a thorough internal search and decide that an inmate has truly escaped. And most of the time, they haven't escaped yet, and are hiding somewhere inside. Or, someone just made a bed change and it didn't get keyed.

    I know there has always been egos involved with LE Agencies around Atwater towards BOP. That probably didn't help matters.

    There's no such thing as a maximum security prison in the BOP.
    "Give me six lines written by the most honorable of men, and I will find an excuse in them to hang him."

    Cardinal Richelieu


    "A fish rots from the head down."

    Some forgotten state prison administrator in reference to poorly led prison agencies.

    The Bald Man and the Fly


    There was once a Bald Man who sat down after work on a hot
    summer's day. A Fly came up and kept buzzing about his bald pate,
    and stinging him from time to time. The Man aimed a blow at his
    little enemy, but his palm came on his head instead;
    again the Fly tormented him, but this time the Man was wiser and
    said:


    "You will only injure yourself if you
    take notice of despicable enemies."
