The Missouri Department of Corrections said the incident started around 8:10 p.m. Saturday at the conclusion of the evening meal.

Authorities said the inmates were asked to return to their housing units, but refused.

Ex-Chipotle manager gets $8 million for wrongful termination

  Ex-Chipotle manager gets $8 million for wrongful termination A California jury has awarded nearly $8 million dollars to the ex-manager of a Chipotle Mexican Grill for wrongful termination. Jeanette Ortiz was accused in 2015 of stealing $626 in cash from a safe at the restaurant in Fresno. Her bosses claimed the theft was recorded on surveillance video, but when Ortiz asked to see the evidence she was told it had been destroyed.

CAMERON , Mo . — A riot at the Crossroads Correctional Facility on Saturday has sparked an enormous response from people who work “There is no way to bounce back from that.” Employees on the inside estimate millions of dollars in damage that will come directly out of taxpayers' pockets.

Prisoners attempted to attack child killer Brett Cowan in 'worst riot in the prison 's history'. The Queensland prison went in to lock down after the targeted attack. Margot Robbie's brother Cameron jokes about his financial situation after claims he now earns ' thousands of dollars a day'.

As the night wore on, 131 inmates ultimately surrendered to staff and were escorted away from the building.

During that riot, officials said staff vacated the building for their safety, and secured all entrance and exit points. The 78 inmates remaining inside damaged property throughout the building.

Damage was noted to the dining halls, kitchen facilities, storage areas, staff offices, and a Missouri Vocational Enterprises factory.

Multiple law enforcement agencies, including the Missouri State Highway Patrol, were called in to provide back-up support. Officials said with the help of a MSHP negotiator, the situation was resolved by 2 a.m. Sunday.

Officials with the DOC said the inmates involved have been identified, searched, and placed in restrictive housing. They will now face a conduct violation process, and may face referrals for prosecution and payment for damages to the building.

A Missouri prison remains on lockdown more than a month after a protest turned into a riot and Inmate activities have been restricted at Crossroads Correctional Center in Cameron since May 12. The Missouri Department of Corrections said 78 of them refused to do so and began damaging

It still remains unclear what medical service issues had upset the inmates. Only around 800 to 900 inmates have refused to riot in a facility that holds Negotiations were ongoing Saturday in an effort to “regain complete control”of the prison after multiple agencies, including federal and state authorities

The DOC said property damage in this incident was extensive. Graffiti, damage to security cameras, and damage to equipment and machinery throughout the building was noted, along with destruction of food supplies.

As a result, DOC staff from across the state have been dispatched to that facility to help with cleanup, inventory, and repairs. Meals are being supplied by neighboring institutions, and a mobile kitchen unit has been set up to provide additional food services to inmates.

The DOC said the Crossroads Correctional Center staff acted appropriately throughout the incident, and as a result, no staff members were injured and no inmates sustained serious injuries requiring outside care.

That facility remains on lockdown, and visitations have been suspended until further notice.

The Missouri Department of Corrections recognizes that it is experiencing a staffing shortage. As a result, they say they've embarked on an aggressive employment recruitment effort.

The DOC said facilities in Cameron were especially short-staffed, and that before the weekend incident, plans were already underway to transfer some inmates out of Cameron, and into other facilities.

"We are thankful that this situation was resolved peacefully and did not require additional outside intervention," said the Department of Corrections. "We are deeply appreciative, however, of the dedicated fellow government agencies, law enforcement, medical services and other first responders who stood by, ready to help, as events unfolded."

Crews are still working to asses the damages to the Crossroads Correctional Center. A total dollar amount in damages is not yet known.
