He escaped Concordia Parish Corrections at approximately 1:30 a.m. Monday with Ryan McKinney, 31, from Springfield, Louisiana, and Carlos Ramos, 25, from Winnfield, Louisiana.
Teal was located Thursday, at a Greenwell Springs residence in Baton Rouge and apprehended by East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office and booked into the Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office Jail on the same day.
Sheriff David Hedrick thanked the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in this case.
Teal was being held at Concordia Parish Corrections for possession of schedule II controlled substances and possession of stolen things and a warrant from another agency. Teal was booked into the Concordia Parish Jail Thursday on additional warrants for simple escape and felony criminal damage to property.
There is an ongoing investigation to locate the other two inmates who accompanied Teal.
McKinney is charged with theft; possession of schedule I and schedule II controlled substances; theft of a motor vehicle; resisting an officer; possession of drug paraphernalia; obstructing public passage; aggravated assault and aggravated flight from an officer. McKinney is described as being 5 feet and 7 inches tall weighing approximately 170 pounds.
Ramos is charged with possession of synthetic cannabis. He is described as being 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing approximately 155 pounds
A former Concordia Parish Corrections Facility employee, Patrick V. Moreno, 21, was also arrested Monday on a malfeasance in office charge after authorities say he “knowingly confirmed an incorrect head count of a prison dorm which resulted in a delay of CPCF I officials identifying missing inmates.”
