WARREN- A high-profile escape attempt at the Maine State Prison last week has prompted corrections officials to take a second look at security, Warden Jeffrey Merrill said.
On Oct. 24, a Maine State Police tactical team armed with assault rifles arrested Susan Watland, 47, of Jackson in a parking lot outside the prison after officials were tipped about an escape plot.
