(MORGANTOWN, Pa.) — Four inmates were taken into custody early Monday after nine had escaped Pennsylvania’s Abraxas Academy, a juvenile detention facility, the day prior, authorities said.

The inmates are male and wearing white and gray shirts and shorts, according to the Robeson Township Police Department in Berks County. Several were taken into custody near Morgantown, Pennsylvania, on Monday.

“Four of the 9 escapees were taken into custody on Oak Grove Road at 5:47 a.m.,” David Beohm, a public information officer with the Pennsylvania State Police, said on social media early Monday.

The escape happened following a riot at the academy, according to another local police agency in Berks County. State and local law enforcement regained control of the detention center, authorities said, but some of the offenders escaped.

Police have advised those in the vicinity of I-176 and Route 10 to be vigilant.

Berks County borders Chester County, the location where authorities searched for and captured escaped inmate Danelo Cavalcante after a 14-day manhunt.
