CLOVIS, N.M. – Law enforcement in eastern New Mexico are on high alert after three inmates escaped from the Curry County Detention Center sometime Friday morning.


According to a release from the Curry County Sheriff's Office, the inmates – who face nearly a dozen charges collectively – "were last seen exiting an east-facing door and traveling north on foot."

The news came as a surprise to Esperanza Meredith, who lives near the detention center. 

"I didn't even know. Didn't hear no sirens, didn't see nothing," she said. "Just sitting here enjoying a cigarette and all of a sudden you came up and told me and I was like, 'Wow.'"

Aaron Davis Clark, 31, is a white male with blonde hair, hazel-colored eyes and dark-rimmed prescription glasses, officials say. He stands 6 foot 1 and weighs about 255 pounds. Officials say he also has tattoos on his neck of a lion with a crown, the letter "C" with a crown and the letter "G." Tattoos of a snake, skull, tombstones and a gun cover other parts of his body.

Deputies say Victor Andrew Apodaca, 28, is a Hispanic man who stands 5 foot 10 and has black hair with brown eyes. He also has tattoos of the names "Renee" and "Andrea" on his neck, "Andrea" on the fingers of his left hand and "Apodaca" on his back.

Ricky Ramon Sena, 24, is a Hispanic man who stands 6 foot and weighs 145 pounds. Officials say he has black hair with brown eyes and has several tattoos covering his body, including that of a Zia symbol with the state outline on his inner right arm and a dragon with smoke and flames on his left leg.

The three inmates were last seen wearing white T-shirts, white shorts and white do-rags on their head. It's unclear at this time how they may have escaped the facility.

Anyone with information as to the inmates' locations is urged to contact their nearest law enforcement entity.
