A New York prisoner is on the loose after he escaped custody from a floating jail known as “The Barge” in the Bronx. 

“Our Correction Intelligence Bureau immediately began working around-the-clock with our law enforcement partners at multiple levels. No escape from our facilities is ever acceptable and we are taking every step to locate and return this individual to custody,” Deputy Commissioner of Public Information Peter Thorne told Fox News. 

The inmate reportedly stripped his department of corrections-issued clothing before escaping. 

“A thorough investigation into how this occurred is underway to ensure that this does not happen again, and disciplinary action, if warranted, will be taken at the conclusion of the investigation,” Thorne added.
