Lexington Correctional Center walkaway arrested

OKLAHOMA CITY – An inmate who walked away Monday from the minimum security unit at Lexington Correctional Center was arrested later that night. 

Curtis Seals, Jr., 39, was found around 10:30 p.m. at the Canadian River, about 1 mile south of 144th Street and Box Road in Cleveland County. 

An Oklahoma Department of Corrections emergency response team, Fugitive Apprehension and Investigations agents, an ODOC K9 unit and area law enforcement participated in the search. 

ODOC tracked him to the river after finding his footprints during a canvas of the area. A citizen had called the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office to report Seals may have been in the vicinity. 

He was returned to the facility on Tuesday but will likely be transferred.

Staff first noticed him missing around 8:20 a.m. Monday.

He is serving 9 years on an Oklahoma County conviction for lewd or indecent propositions or acts to a child.
