2 Inmates Escape Federal Prison

Men Disappeared From Prison Camp In Littleton

Two inmates walked away from a minimum security prison camp on Friday afternoon.

Officials realized Eric Rivera and Victor Beltran were missing about 4 p.m., said John Sell, spokesman for Federal Correctional Institution Englewood, which is located in Littleton.

It's the same facility where former Illinois governor Rod R. Blagojevich is serving his time on federal corruption charges.

Rivera is 30 years old. He is a Hispanic man, 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds. He was serving 57 months for distributing meth, said Sell.

Rivera was scheduled to be released December 30, 2014.

Beltran is 48 year old. He is a Hispanic man, 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 190 pounds. He has gray hair and brown eyes. Beltran was serving 156 months for conspiracy to distribute cocaine, Sell said.

Beltran was scheduled to be released June 11, 2018.

Both men are from California, Sell said. They are not considered armed or dangerous.

The minimum security prison doesn’t have a fence around it.

The prisoners are all screened and all non-violent offenders.
