Inmate escapes from Stewart Conservation Camp

Staff report

A convict who walked away from the Stewart Conservation Camp on Thursday is being sought by Nevada Department of Corrections officials and police.

Tommy Bridges, 35, is described as a white male, 6 feet tall and 175 pounds. He has blond hair and blue eyes.

Bridges was last seen by juveniles on Dat-So-La-Lee in the Stewart Indian Colony, said Lt. Ken Sandage with the Carson City Sheriff’s Department.

Prison officials said Bridges was listed as missing Thursday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. after an informal count of inmates at the camp on Snyder Avenue in south Carson City. He was imprisoned in July 2005 after being convicted of possession of stolen property in Lyon County and would have been eligible for parole in August when he could have begun serving an additional 12 to 31 months on a burglary charge.

Anyone with information as to his whereabouts should contact their local law enforcement agency or the Department of Corrections Inspector General’s Office at 887-3247.
