Escaped Prisoner Sparks Luzerne County Search

WILKES-BARRE — Luzerne County officials confirmed a prisoner escaped from the minimal offenders unit around 11a.m. Thursday by climbing over a fence.

Jail officials said Kevin Kuklinski is serving time in the minimal offenders unit, not the prison, for trespassing and burglary charges.

Newswatch 16 found police and firefighters from all over the Wyoming Valley searching wooded areas across the Susquehanna River near Nesbitt Park, as well as crews putting boats in the water.
