Louisiana security guard charged with helping 3 incarcerated teens escape


Louisiana authorities are looking for three underage detainees who escaped from a detention center, allegedly with the help of a 21-year-old security guard, state police said Saturday.

Tyjuan Lafitte, 17; Na’varaya Lane, 17; and Jérémie Durham, 15; all escaped from Ware Youth Center in Coushatta just before 3 a.m. Saturday, police said. Video footage shows 21-year-old security guard Victoria Tune leading the trio off the scene in a white 2010 Pontiac G6, the Red River Parish Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

Police were not alerted until around 6:50 a.m. when day shift workers noticed the three men were missing, the sheriff’s office said.

Lafitte is charged with attempted first-degree murder, Lane is charged with attempted second-degree murder and Durham is charged with armed robbery, state police said, adding “all three are considered dangerous.”
