Escapees from Youth Center Captured

Two teenagers who escaped from the Swanson Center for Youth are back in custody.


Louisiana State Police say 18-year-old Kevin Provost, a 17-year-old and a 16-year-old escaped the facility on Monday.


Provost and the 17-year-old were captured Saturday. State police, in a news release, said both face charges of aggravated escape and battery on a correctional facility employee.


Provost was in custody for armed robbery, while the other youth has a robbery arrest and manslaughter charge in his record.


The youngest escapee was recaptured Tuesday.
