MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) — Muskegon Correctional Facility workers have foiled the escape plot of a former Ann Arbor man convicted of two murders.

President Tom Tylutki of the Michigan Corrections Organization says corrections officers at the Muskegon facility discovered Patrick C. Daniel’s plans to escape from a medium-security unit Wednesday. He says homemade items, including maps of West Michigan, a compass, two flashlights and a yarn rope were found in the man’s cell.

The Muskegon Chronicle reports a prison uniform painted white, additional clothing and packaged food also was found in the cell. During a search of the prison auditorium, corrections officers discovered items that could have been used as weapons.

A Michigan Department of Corrections spokesman says Daniel was placed in segregation after the discoveries. He says the Michigan State Police is investigating.
