Stark Regional Community Corrections Center is a “community-based adult correctional facility,” according to its website.

The center is an alternative to prison for eligible lower-level felons, The Repository newspaper of Canton reported.

Most of the escaped inmates were being held on drug convictions. However, Miller was convicted of having weapons under disability and improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle, and Drake was sentenced for burglary, according to the newspaper.

Police are asking for the public’s help but say no one should try to approach the suspects.
