CLINTON - The manhunt continues for two escaped prisoners, who were last seen in Clinton Sunday night after escaping from the Mountain View Correctional Facility in Annandale.
Police are investigating a stolen cell phone and Jeep from two residences within walking distance of the prison. The thefts happened soon after Corey Agastarola, 21, and Michael Bentley, 23, escaped. Both had been incarcerated on burglary charges.
The two suspects were also seen at the Clinton Station Diner, which is five miles from the correctional facility. Costas Zambas, the diner's manager, says they were there with two women.
The Department of Corrections is not releasing information on where they're searching for the two escaped inmates and added that any information likely wouldn't be passed along until they were caught.
