Two face new charges after jail escape

Email

Two Becker County jail inmates are back in custody after a short-lived escape late Saturday evening.

Sheriff Kelly Shannon said 30-year-old Scott Allan Sellers and 20-year-old Arlan Ray Bergstrom Jr. escaped from the jail by removing a metal plate from the handicap shower, then breaking out a 9-inch-wide window before lowering themselves to the ground.

Sellers’ arm was cut severely by broken glass in the escape.
