An inmate who escaped from a work detail at the state prison in Cranston has been spotted on a security video from a Providence convenience store.
State Police Lt. Mark Farnum tells The Providence Journal that 25-year-old Keurys Pena, who also goes by the name Michael Santana, was seen on the video from Monday afternoon a store in the Elmwood Avenue area of South Providence.
Pena was reported missing from the state prison at 12:50 p.m. Monday.
Police say Pena is not a danger to the public.
He is serving a four-and-a-half-year prison sentence for breaking and entering.
