CONNERSVILLE, Ind.– Authorities in Fayette County are searching for three men who each escaped from a community corrections program.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Department says arrest warrants for Sean Bannon, Austin Carr and John Curtsinger have been issued. Each is for escape, a Level 6 felony.

Bannon removed his ankle bracelet in April and has not been seen since.

Carr was on home detention and removed his ankle bracelet after letting the battery die on the device on July 15.

Curtsinger, while participating in the work release program, said he needed to go to the emergency room on July 16. He cut his ankle bracelet off that day and hasn’t been seen since.

The work release facility in Fayette County is a freestanding facility where those in the program can only leave for work, then must come right back to the facility following their shift. Officials say the three men acted separately.

Officials said they wanted this information to be released so residents could keep an eye out for them, especially with the county fair coming up soon.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call the Sheriff’s office at (765) 825-1110 or police dispatch at (765) 825-2111.
