Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, ODOC has partnered with Securus Technologies to provide inmates two free phone calls each week while visitation was suspended. With visitation reopening, these free phone calls will continue until April 15. After April 15, phone calls will still be permitted, subject to standard rates and policies.

ODOC agents capture final NOCC walkaway in Perry

Saturday, March 28, 2020

PERRY, Okla. – Agents with Oklahoma Department of Corrections’ Inspector General’s Office have captured the second of two walkaways from Northeast Oklahoma Correctional Center in Vinita. Devan Johnson, 25, was located and arrested at 6:35 p.m. Saturday in Perry. 

With inmate Kaden White, Johnson walked away Wednesday afternoon from NOCC, a minimum-security prison for men located on the grounds of the Oklahoma Forensic Center. White was located later Wednesday evening, but Johnson remained at large. 

ODOC agents took Johnson into custody without incident. As a COVID-19 precaution, he will be quarantined at Lexington Correctional Center for 14 days before transferring to another facility. 

When he walked away, Johnson was serving five years for second-degree burglary out of Oklahoma County, aggravated assault and battery out of Pottawatomie County, and other crimes. 

ODOC will present escape charges against Johnson and White to the Craig County District Attorney’s Office.
