By Scotty T. Reid – A known white supremacist leader of a domestic terrorist group in the USA and another inmate were allowed to escape from Jefferson County Detention Center in Pine Bluff, Ark. Jefferson County Sheriff Lafayette Woods Jr., blamed the escapes on a “funding crunch” that left the facilitate understaffed according to him. New Aryan Empire “president”, 30 yr-old Wesley Gullett along with Christopher Sanderson who was in jail on separate felony gun charges, escaped by putting “dummy bodies” in their beds according to Sheriff Lafayette Woods Jr.
There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to the capture of Mr. Gullett, whom prosecutors identified as the president of the New Aryan Empire, a white supremacist terrorist organization that supports its activities by selling “copious amounts” of methamphetamine around the Arkansas River Valley in predominately white communities. Gullet was arrested earlier in the year during a law enforcement operation which arrested 54 members of the hate/terrorist group.
Mr. Gullett is was being held on charges that conspired with others in the attempted murder of Bruce Wayne Hurley, a government informant who was killed in 2016.
Despite Mr. Gullet being a leader of a white supremacist terrorist organization, there is only a &10,000 reward for information leading to his recapture. He is considered armed and dangerous and should be observed with caution.
Update: A spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office in eastern Arkansas says Wesley Gullett was captured Thursday in Pope County in western Arkansas, a day after he escaped from the Jefferson County facility. TPope County is almost 100 miles northwest of Pine Bluff, which is home to the Jefferson County Detention Center where Gullett and inmate Christopher Sanderson escaped earlier this week.
