Inmate Escapes near Bunkie

Trevis RandleAVOYELLES PARISH, La – An inmate from the Avoyelles Parish Detention Center 2 east of Bunkie escaped early Sunday morning. The inmate is Trevis Randle, 42, from Alexandria and is described as a black male, 5′ 4” and 205 lbs.

Early Sunday morning Randle went out with kitchen workers and headed towards the fence. That is where APSO said Randle was “obviously assisted by someone on the outside” and cut through the fence then headed towards the woods. The Avoyells Parish Correctional Center’s Tracking Team searched for Randle in the woods, but later determined he was picked on the nearby state highway.

Randle is a pretrial detainee yet to receive his sentencing. He was booked on possession of firearm-felon, possession of CDS and obstruction of justice. Randle now has a warrant out for simple escape.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Randle you can call the Avoyelles Parish Sheriff’s Office at (318) 253-4000 or your local police department.
