Oregon prison inmate escapes from work-crew van

Was on the way to Salem work assignment

SALEM, Ore. - A minimum-custody inmate got out and fled Monday morning from a state prison inmate work crew van, the Oregon Department of Corrections said.

Lorrie Marie Hocker, 42, an inmate at the Coffee Creek Correctional Facility in Wilsonville, was on the way to a work assignment in Salem, riding in a van, when she opened a door and fled, officials said.

Hocker is a white female, 5 ft. 3 in. weighing 145 pounds. She has blue eyes and brown hair. She was last seen wearing blue jeans with the word "inmate" stenciled on the knee in orange, a blue T-shirt, sweatshirt, and coat similarly stenciled.

She was admitted to CCCF on Sept. 12 on two counts of coercion out of Montana and one count of felony assault out of Lane County. She was scheduled for release in July, 2018.

The Oregon Department of Corrections Fugitive Apprehension Unit and the Oregon State Police are investigating. Anyone with information regarding her whereabouts should contact the Oregon State Police at 1-800-452-7888, the non-emergency number of their local police department, or the Oregon Department of Corrections Fugitive Apprehension Unit at 503-945-0975.

CCCF is a multi-custody prison in Wilsonville accommodating all of Oregon's female inmates (approximately 1,260). The prison has cell and dormitory housing, inmate work programs, skills training, treatment programs, health services, religious services, physical plant, a central records unit, and administrative areas. CCCF participates in prison industries with Oregon Corrections Enterprises, including a contact center, textiles, and document scanning.
