MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A week after two juveniles escaped from the Eastern Regional Juvenile Detention Center, Director Tom Moreland said security is being beefed up while a change in management of West Virginia's juvenile detention centers moves forward.
"We're re-keying the locks here today," Moreland said Tuesday.
Miguel Quinones, 19, and Adam Rozas, 17, stole a staff member's keys to the center when they escaped last Tuesday.
While the pair remained at large last night, the car of staff member Cheryl Lutz was found by police in the Bronx in New York City late Friday night.
Moreland also said he plans to get the staff "hand-held radios so that they can communicate in the building."
Quinones, an accused murderer, was able to overpower Lutz while another staffer, Larry Murphy, was outside investigating a loud noise. He overpowered Murphy when he came back inside.
