WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Authorities are searching for two inmates who recently escaped from different facilities in Palm Beach County.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement reports that investigators are working to track down 54-year-old Philip Peletz and 27-year-old Antwane Anglin.

Officials say Peletz – an inmate at the Loxahatchee Road Prison – walked away from a road prison work detail Tuesday morning in West Palm Beach. He was serving five years for grand theft and petty theft.

Officials say Anglin walked away from a West Palm Beach Community Work Release Program early Thursday morning. He was serving time for several drug-related offenses.

Anyone with information about either man should call FDLE Miami at 800-226-3023.
