Robeson Co. escaped inmate arrested in Pembroke

Corrections and law enforcement officers are searching for Jamie Parrish who escaped from the Robeson CRV Center in Lumberton. He was discovered missing shortly after 10 p.m.

LUMBERTON, N.C. (WNCN) – An inmate who escaped from a Robeson County correctional facility Thursday night has been caught, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety (DPS) said Friday.

Robeson County deputies arrested Jamie Parrish, 40, around 7:15 a.m at a Wal-Mart store in Pembroke.

Parrish was due to be released from the Robeson CRV Center Friday morning, according to a spokesperson from DPS. But he is facing charges in Wayne County, so he was scheduled to be transferred to Wayne County Jail from the CRV Center. Those charges include larceny, possession of stolen goods, and driving while impaired.

According to the DPS website, Confinement in Response to Violation (CRV) centers “house and provide intensive behavior modification programs for those who have committed technical violations of probation.” CRV centers are similar to minimum-security prisons with dormitory-style housing. Their programs involve life skills training, behavioral therapy and substance abuse treatment.

Parrish had been serving a 90-day confinement at Robeson CRV Center for violation of his post-release supervision.
