Convicted thief escapes drug treatment center robs CU
ANNISTON, Ala. (4/27/09)--A convicted armed robber escaped a drug treatment center April 20 and then robbed Fort McClellan CU Tuesday. Glasco Stephens, 34, remained at large last week after robbing the $106.2 million asset, Anniston, Ala.-based credit union (The Anniston Star April 23). A corrections officer made two poor decisions--having only one officer transport Stephens from a jail to the treatment center, and unloading inmates at the wrong door of the treatment center--that helped Stephens escape, Sheriff Larry Amerson told the newspaper. Calhoun County had 18 deputies and a K-9 [dog] unit searching the area last week for Stephens, who authorities still believe is in the area near Anniston, Amerson told the paper. Stephens was awaiting trial for a 2008 armed robbery and was previously convicted of a 2002 armed robbery. He was sentenced to three years in jail, along with 17 years on probation and undergoing a drug treatment program, the paper said.
