This morning, two inmates escaped from Piedmont Juvenile Detention Center in Farmville. They are described as a 17-year-old black male and a 17-year-old white male of Russian descent. Both are wearing blue jumpsuits, and neither are wearing shoes. A search is ongoing involving local and state police. Practice caution and call 911 to report suspicious behavior.
