For the second time in a week, an inmate has escaped from a federal prison in Louisiana, according to online records and local reports. 

Michael Roy Reed, 47, an inmate from the satellite camp near the United States Penitentiary (USP) Pollock, was reported missing Saturday morning around 7:30 a.m., KALB reported.

Reed was sentenced in 2019 in the Western District of Louisiana to an 84-month sentence for unlawful transport of firearms and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. 

Just a week prior to Reed’s alleged escape, Martin Carlos Carrasco escaped from the same institution, according to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons. 

Carrasco had been serving a 120-month sentence for conspiracy to possess five kilograms or more of cocaine with intent to distribute, KALB reported.
