BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - An inmate serving time for drug possession and for walking away from a prerelease center has escaped from the Montana Women’s Prison in Billings.

Associate Warden Bob Paul says 26-year-old Christina Becker was assigned to the garden maintenance crew and apparently escaped over the perimeter fence at about 10:30 a.m. Friday.

Becker is 5 feet, 3 inches tall, weighs about 150 pounds and has blonde hair, blue eyes and a light complexion. She was last seen wearing grey shorts and a navy blue T-shirt. She was serving a five-year sentence for possession of dangerous drugs and a consecutive three-year sentence for walking away from the prerelease center in July 2015. She was located in her home state of New Mexico in November.

The Billings Gazette reports the last escape from the women’s prison was in May 2008.
