Oklahoma jail experiences second jailbreak in months, four ‘dangerous’ inmates on the run

A jail in Oklahoma experienced the second jailbreak just a few months after four inmates, including a murderer, escaped from the jail early Monday morning, reports ABC News.

Sometime between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. on Monday, Jeremy Tyson Irvin, 31; Brian Allen Moody, 23; Sonny Baker, 41; and Trey Glenn Goodnight, 27 escaped out of the Lincoln County Jail using the ventilation system.

For Moody and Baker, this was their second escape in just a few months. On March 17, Moody, Baker, and a third man broke out using the air vents. The Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office said the men were caught just days later.

“Moody, along with the third man, was recaptured on March 22 in eastern Oklahoma County. Baker was caught on March 29 in Shawnee.”

Lincoln County Sheriff Charles Dougherty said the men used the same means of escape each time.

“There’s an area between the ceiling and … probably about a 10-foot wall. It’s made out of wire. They get up on top of that and they’re able to jump over an air vent.”

Dougherty said he’s been working to remedy the issue so that this situation doesn’t repeat itself.

“I’ve already met with all three county commissioners and they’ve been in here with some contractors to look and see what we can do to avoid this from happening anymore.”

He says that these men are “dangerous folks” and he doesn’t believe they’ll stick around the area.

Police are keeping an eye out for two trucks the men could possibly be using.

According to Fox News, Moody, Baker, and Goodnight are serving time for property crime charges. Irvin was charged with first-degree murder.

The Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office said anyone with information is urged to call the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 405-258-1191.
