Danny Spillers/Oregon Dept. of Corrections

PORTLAND, Ore. — A man serving time for a burglary conviction has escaped from an Oregon Prison by breaking a kitchen window.

State officials say they discovered Danny Spillers was missing from the Columbia River Correctional Institution in Portland around 5:30 a.m. Sunday after discovering the broken window.

The Department of Corrections says the 35-year-old began his sentence in the minimum security prison in June. He had been convicted of four counts of burglary in the second degree and one count of unauthorized use of a vehicle in Multnomah County. His earliest release date is April 13, 2017.

The Columbia River Correctional Institution houses nearly 600 men who are within four years of release.
