ODOC, Sequoyah County Sheriff's deputies arrest 2 in Riffey walkaway

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma Department of Corrections Fugitive Apprehension and Investigations agents and Sequoyah County Sherrif’s deputies have arrested two in the walkaway last week of a Jess Dunn Correctional Center inmate. 

Corbett Perkins and Dee Riffey were booked into the Sequoyah County Jail on Friday for complaints of harboring a fugitive. Perkins was also booked for assault and battery on a police officer and obstruction of justice. 

Perkins is the brother-in-law of JDCC walkaway Mark Riffey, who walked away May 29 from the minimum security prison for men in Taft. Dee Riffey is the inmate’s wife. 

ODOC Fugitive Apprehension and Investigations agents, the U.S. Marshals Task Force, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, and other area law enforcement remain on the lookout for Riffey. 

When he walked away, Riffey was serving time for kidnapping, rape, child abuse, and assault and battery on a police officer convictions out of Sequoyah County.

He is described as American Indian, about 5-feet 9-inches tall and weighing approximately 185 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes.

He should be considered extremely dangerous, and has a history of violence against women and children.
