SANTA CRUZ (CBS SF) – Authorities were searching for two inmates who escaped from a women’s jail in Santa Cruz Monday.

The women, Sara Marko, 20 and Brittany Beus, 22, escaped from the Blaine Street Women’s Facility, and were last seen near Felker Street, along the San Lorenzo River levee, police said.

Both were wearing jail clothing. Police are urging anyone who spots the women to call 911 immediately.

Santa Cruz police Deputy Chief Steve Clark said no streets have been shut down and no homes evacuated, but he advised residents in the area to be especially cautious and report any unusual people or activities.

He said the women are not believed to be armed.

    Great journalism..! Thank you for showing what their jail cell looked like..! Next time we see a jail cell looking like that, we will report it to the authorities..! Oh – and as an aside – just in case we see those two women somewhere, it would really be helpful if we knew what those two women looked like. I guess you aren’t clerared for that sort of Top Secret infrmation and imagery, eh? On the other hand, will just any two women suffice for the capture, or is that stratching it a bit..?
