MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — An inmate “walked away” from the Northeast Regional Corrections Center In Saginaw Sunday afternoon, and is still at large, according to the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office.

Jesse James Crabtree left the facility on foot just before 2:30 p.m., triggering a search involving K9s and a drone.
