LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — Nebraska's Department of Correctional Services is looking for two inmates who walked away from its Community Corrections Center-Lincoln (CCC-L) this morning.

The inmates removed their electronic monitoring systems and left them near Highway 77 and West Van Dorn Street in Lincoln.

43-year-old Brandon Britton is described as a white man, 5’9”, 231 lbs., with brown hair and green eyes.

Britton started serving a 10-year sentence on Jan. 23, 2018 for drug, assault and firearm possession charges. His tentative release date is Feb. 18, 2023 with a parole eligibility date of Feb. 17, 2023.

52-year old Ronald Taylor is described as a white man, 6’2”, 255 lbs., with auburn hair and blue eyes.

Taylor was serving a sentence of 24 years and nine months to 54 years which began on Oct. 30, 1997. He was sentenced for crimes including escape, possession of a controlled substance, assault by a confined person, theft and possession of methamphetamine. His tentative release date is May 14, 2025.
