28-year-old suspected murderer Kevin Mason was on the run from the law for two years before finally being apprehended on September 11. Mason had been wanted for allegedly gunning someone down in a Minneapolis parking lot in 2021, in addition to parole violations and weapons charges.
YAY, right? No. No yay at all.
Because just 2 days after the aLlEgEdLy dangerous criminal was in custody, where he belongs, he was allowed to walk right out the front doors of the Adult Detention Center in Indianapolis.
Colonel James Martin with the Marion County Sheriff's Office attempts to explain:
"On Sept. 12 one of our inmate records clerks thought she was correcting different bookings for Mr. Mason. She removed two of the holds leaving one additional hold for Mr. Mason. The next day on Sept. 13, Ramsey County, out of Minnesota, lifted the last and final hold that we had booked on for Mr. Mason.
"Our clerk that was reviewing it sees three Minnesota holds, didn't realize what she was doing obviously. It's a critical error, critical mistake. They're identified very specifically by the originating agency that did it. They have a specific ID number, they're all different and the case numbers are all different.
"This was an error. This should have not happened. Mason should not have been release from out custody. This was discovered shortly after he was released."
Oh that's all.
Your tax dollars at work, ladies and gents.
Let's hope they catch this guy soon. A week and a half later and he is still at large.
