Default Article: Nearly 200 state prisoners moved to Gunnison

Nearly 200 state prisoners moved to Gunnison

Nearly 200 maximum-security inmates were moved Sunday from the state prison in Draper to new housing in Gunnison, according to the state Department of Corrections.

"We're getting to that point where the population is getting over capacity," said Mike Haddon, deputy director of corrections.

Officers transported 186 inmates to the new facility in Gunnison. For security reasons, no one but law enforcement and government agencies were told the move would occur, Haddon said.

"Over the next several days, the families [of the inmates] will more than likely be able to talk to the offenders themselves," he said.

The inmates were not given a choice in the move, and one scuffled with guards because he did not want to go, Haddon said.

"That was about the only incident we really had," Haddon said.

The Gunnison prison is 109 miles from the Draper prison.

The guys that were moved are the high security prisoners that get out of their cells for maybe 3 hours a day. DH says their doors are plexiglass so they have no privacy whatsoever.

When I didn't get my phone call I called the prison and asked if they were in a lock-down. They won't tell you much more than that but in the case of a missed phone call...it's enough.

Default Gah.

Anyone eles' loved one besides mine on here part of this move? I knew something was wrong when he didn't call me Sunday morning and then I had to become a detective and hunt him down. He IS in Gunnison but I haven't heard anything from him in over a week. This is maddening. I'd go down there and see him but I live 1500 miles away so I guess I just have to wait for a phone call-though I haven't the slightest idea why they'd make us wait so long for a phone call. A week seems a bit ridiculous.
