Authorities identify teens that escaped from Lucas County Juvenile Justice Center


Authorities continue to search for two teenagers who escaped Friday night from the Lucas County Juvenile Justice Center.

Dontae Moore, 16, and Willis Johnson, 17, escaped from the juvenile jail, 1801 Spielbusch Ave. in downtown Toledo, about 8:30 p.m.

Another teenager, a 16-year-old Michigan boy, broke a window on the second floor to escape, but while he was being restrained the other two escaped in their green jumpsuits.

Young Moore was being held in the jail on a violation of probation warrant. He was on probation for two burglary charges from January, 2008.

Young Johnson was being held on seven felony charges — two felonious assault, two aggravation robbery, and three burglary — and a probation violation from a domestic violence conviction from June, 2007.

Both boys were recently booked into the juvenile jail, Young Moore about 5 p.m. Friday and Young Johnson about 11:30 p.m. Thursday.
