Duo now faces weapons charges
The federal indictment maintains Young gave a 9-mm Glock pistol and a .380-caliber AMT pistol to Manard on the date of the prison break.

In the three weeks prior to the Feb. 12 prison escape by convicted killer John Manard, the same corrections officer on five occasions let the Safe Harbor Prison Dogs van exit the prison without properly searching it, the Department of Corrections said. The officer's firing was announced Friday.
A worker in the Safe Harbor Prison Dog program said she warned her boss, apparently to no avail, about getting too close to Lansing Correctional Facility inmate John Manard.
