For the people that said yes in the news 4 poll about having armed guards for inmates in work details! These are minimum security inmates you idiots! These same inmates can escape very easily from minimum security camps because even the officers in camps don't have weapons! There is typically a 10 ft. chain link fence around these types of institutions! I should know because I was a Lt. at one in Winnemucca for 16 yrs.!!!

"in the I-80 and McCarran area, near Robb Drive." Maybe you need to read the story a little better before you get snarky. That's a general area,not specific.

seems that a CC and a LV inmate have better Reno geography knowledge than local TV news

McCarran and Robb don't intersect. Nv4 may have seen these exits while texting on I-80
