Four inmates made a clean getaway from an Oklahoma jail Sunday after prying open a maintenance hatch in their shower.
The four pulled off the first escape from the two-year-old Caddo County jail in Anadarko, Sheriff Gene Cain said.
They first broke a lock on the hatch above the shower head, Cain told CNN affiliate KFOR-TV.
They then moved through a crawl space until they reached a wall, where they knocked out cement block or two, the sheriff said. That got them to an unlocked door outside the jail area, Cain said.
“Each man was sentenced on criminal charges ranging from burglary to meth possession and parole violation," CNN’s George Howell reports.
According to officials, the maintenance doors of the detention center–built two years ago, were supposed to be sealed shut.
“Clearly, they weren't. At this point, investigators say they have no new leads to where these men are.”
