New Orleans, Louisiana 2021-11-25 16:22:00 –

According to state officials, an investigation into prisoners who escaped from the Dixon Orthodontic Institute on Thursday morning is underway.

According to Ken Pastrick, a spokesman for the Louisiana Public Security Corrections Bureau, 23-year-old Schwillier Chivis escaped from Jackson’s prison early on Thanksgiving. Cheevis is 5 feet 7 and weighs 138 pounds, officials say.

Cheevis has been serving for 15 years for possession of firearms by two deteriorating batteries and a convicted serious offender-a 2019 ruling from the Parish of Cado, corrective authorities say. He was transferred from Clayborn Detention Center to Dixon Orthodontics on March 22 and was a prisoner’s trustee.

According to Pastrick, he had previously been probated in 2018 for the illegal use of weapons convictions in the Parish of Cado.

Dixon and LDPSC tracking teams are involved in the search, as are the East Feliciana and West Feliciana parishes and the US Marshals Service’s Sheriff’s Office.

Anyone who knows where Cheevis is will be asked to call Dixon Correctional at (225) 634-6000.
