Oregon State Police on Wednesday arrested three teens who escaped from the MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility in Woodburn over the weekend.
Detectives spotted the trio in a vehicle near Lebanon and pursued them after they fled, the Oregon Youth Authority said in a news release.
Police deployed stop sticks near Albany to flatten the vehicle's tires and were able to arrest all three teens, who remain in custody in Linn County. They are:
-Preston Andrizzi, age 19, of Albany
-Anthony Fitz-Henry, age 18, of Keizer
-Christian Goin, age 17, of Albany
The teens escaped Sunday the Woodburn facility Sunday after midnight through a hole cut in the MacLaren perimeter fence, OYA said. They assaulted a staff member who was treated for injuries at a hospital and released.
The fence hole has since been repaired.
“We are thankful to hear that the youth were located and that no one was injured in the process,” said Sarah Evans, deputy communications manager for OYA, in a prepared statement.
