Three men are on the run after escaping a Berks County correctional center.

Officials say 28-year-old Ryan Allen Celani of Pottstown and 22-year-old Jeremy Collazo of Reading escaped the Wernersville Community Correction Center.

Police say around 3:30 Friday night, Celani pulled a fire alarm pull system to create a diversion and then fled the facility with Collazo following.


Police then say around 7 p.m.  that night, 25-year-old Adam Murphy of Pen Argyl, pulled the exact same fire alarm and escaped the facility.

Murphy was last spotted getting into a gold colored Honda Civic with New York license plates.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Pennsylvania State Police-Reading at: 610-378-4011.
