Honor Camp Escapee Arrested in Texas

One of the two inmates who escaped from the Wyoming Honor Conservation Camp in Newcastle is back in custody. Jason Green, 48, was arrested Sunday morning around 3 a.m. in Mesquite, Texas, according to a release from the Weston County Emergency Department who confirmed with the Newcastle Police.

In a post released by Mesquite City Hall’s Communication Director Wayne Larson, officers responded to a suspicious person call in the early morning on Sept. 29. Officers saw two individuals running from the location, and the second suspect is believed to be the other missing inmate, 30-year-old Robert Simpson, who still remains at large.

Green and Simpson escaped from the Honor Conservation Camp Sept. 22, and reportedly stole a city of Newcastle work truck and traveled to Laramie, where they abandoned that vehicle and stole another.

Green is serving a three- to eight-year sentence for larceny, while Simpson is serving a five- to 15-year sentence for aggravated burglary with a weapon.

Simpson is 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighs approximately 165 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes. Simpson is considered to be armed and dangerous, and anyone with information is asked to call the Mesquite police at (972) 285-6336.
