Smooth getaway: 12 escaped inmates fool prison guard with peanut butter

Smooth getaway: 12 escaped inmates fool prison guard with peanut butter

The details are scarce, but authorities from the Walker County Jail in the city of Jasper confirmed to AL.com that 12 inmates had escaped around 9:30 pm local time.

"They had changed the number over the door with peanut butter, they hollered, 'hey, open the door.,' but that door number was the outside door, and unbeknowingly to him, he hit that lock and out the door they went", Underwood said.

Instead, he had just unlocked the door that opened to the outside.

"It may sound insane, but these kinds of people are insane like a fox". "I'm not going to make any excuses", Underwood said, ABC News reported.

"They took advantage of a young fellow that hadn't been here very long", Underwood said, referring to the new guard who accidentally let the escapees free.

Brady Andrew Kilpatrick, who was in prison on tranquilize ownership charges, had not been found starting at early Monday morning, as indicated by the sheriff. Only one was hurt in the escape, cutting his thumb on a razor wire fence.




El Chapo famously escaped from a maximum-security prison through a deep, high-tech, 1-mile tunnel.

-Michael Adam McGuff, 30, of Jasper - in jail for third-degree escape and obstructing government operations.

According to Walker County Sheriff James Underwood, that was enough to fool a corrections officer into believing the door, which led outside, was instead a cell door.

CNN reports police have offered a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the remaining escapee.

While most of the inmates were captured in Jasper, some made it to Townley where they apparently stole a truck.

Attempted murderer Steven Blake Lamb, 28, was recaptured at around 10.30pm. The nearly 20-year-old office holds 250 prisoners, as indicated by its site.
