Jess Dunn walkaway arrested in Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY - Nathan Harmon, who walked away March 29 from Jess Dunn Correctional Center in Taft, was arrested Wednesday night by Oklahoma City police.  

The arrest took place during a traffic stop at the intersection of SE 89th Street and South Shields Boulevard. Oklahoma Department of Corrections Fugitive Apprehension and Investigations agents had tracked Harmon to the Oklahoma City area. 

After the stop, Harmon, 32, was booked in to Oklahoma County jail on a hold for ODOC, as well as complaints of concealing stolen property, false impersonation, and unauthorized use of a vehicle. 

“This just goes to show that if you walk or run away from one of our facilities, we will find and arrest you, ultimately,” ODOC Director Joe M. Allbaugh said. 

Harmon walked away from Jess Dunn Correctional Center by climbing over a razor wire fence. 

He then is alleged to have stolen a pickup truck belonging to a Muskogee police officer. 

Harmon was still driving the truck when police arrested him Wednesday.
