17-Year Old Murder Suspect On The Run

Montgomery, Al. (WSFA) -- It happened on the northwest side of the Mount Meigs Juvenile Detention Center in Montgomery. Authorities believe it may have been planned but regardless 17-year old Glenn Herrmann literally walked outside, somehow climbed the fence and climbed inside a waiting car with a driver.

"No evidence he's in the area," said Montgomery County Sheriff D.T. Marshall.

More troubling is the fact Herrmann is wanted on first degree murder charges in Prince George's County, Maryland.  So why was he being held in a  minimum-security juvenile detention center instead of a jail?

It turns out Herrmann was serving his time at Mount Meigs on a burglary conviction, typically a sentence of 4 to 6 months. On March 26th Mount Meigs authorities here tell WSFA 12 News that they received a fax from Maryland investigators requesting that Mount Meigs officials hold on to Herrmann until extradition papers were signed. The 17-year old allegedly committed the murder last year. Mount Meigs tells 12 News they never got those papers and an investigator with the Prince George's County Police Department said he would get back with us on the matter. He never did.

Meantime, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department along with the U.S. Marshalls are searching high and low for Glenn Herrmann.

"He's pretty well caught, no matter where he goes. It's just a matter of time," said Sheriff Marshall.

The campus declined to say whether guards might be reprimanded but did say they'll take another look at their security measures.

Herrmann's father today in Randolph County tells WSFA 12 News he hasn't heard yet from his son.
