Okla. Prison Break: Two inmates caught near convenience store, two more at large

The search continues for two of the inmates who broke out of a jail in Anadarko, Okla., on Sunday, while the other two men are back in custody. Several state and federal agencies including the U.S. Marshals are now assisting in the search for Triston Cheadle and Anthony Mendonca.

The two men who were captured, Dylan Ray Three Irons and Prime Brown, were brought back to Caddo County jail after 30 hours. Their escape ended at a convenience store 20 miles away and surveillance video shows their last moments of freedom.

Caddo County Sheriff, Gene Cain, told CBS News’ Manuel Bojorquez that he wants Cheadle and Mendonca back.

“I want them bad,” he said. “Any law enforcement that loses a prisoner, you want them bad.”

Cain said this was not a spur-of-the-moment escape because loosening the panel’s screws is not easy and they were probably planning this for awhile.

Deputies are checking addresses of relatives and acquaintances of the two inmates who are still on the loose. Repairs are already underway inside the jail, including welding those ceiling panels shut.
