RAIFORD, Fla. — Authorities say they’re looking for a Florida inmate who escaped after stealing a Department of Corrections van.

The Florida Times-Union (https://goo.gl/Nm3hSS ) reports that 33-year-old Thor Harold Bahrman broke free from a Florida State Prison facility in Raiford Friday afternoon. Corrections officials say no alarm was raised when he took the van and fled.

Records show Bahrman had been serving a two-year sentence in a minimum security unit after he was sentenced on drug charges in March.

Anyone with information on Bahrman’s whereabouts should call 911.
