Over this past weekend at Walker County Jail in Jasper, Alabama twelve Inmates made a bold and daring escape from prison. By using Peanut Butter, they managed to pull off their escape which also involved a duped prison employee and plenty of blankets. However, their time as free men did not last long following this breakout as the ensuing manhunt quickly captured most of them.

How the inmates escaped jail

At a Monday afternoon news conference following the weekend escape, Walker County Sheriff James Underwood detailed to the media how the inmates got out.

He said that the inmates were in the control room, with a recent hire by the Walker County Jail keeping count of inmates. The inmates then asked to have a door opened, which the guard complied with, not knowing that he had already been duped. Apparently, the inmates had used peanut butter from jailhouse sandwiches to change the number over the door and fool the recent hire.

So when the guard hit the button to unlock the door, it actually led the inmates outside of the jail. They then threw blankets up on the razor wire fence outside, which they used to climb over and finish their escape. Underwood said that the guard “made a mistake” and that he was keeping count of 150 inmates at the time.

Freedom did not last long for most

However, by Underwood's Monday afternoon news conference eleven of the twelve inmates who escaped had been captured. He was happy to report that the two most serious offenders of the group had been among those caught. However, two of the inmates did get injuries during the escape and one had to be emitted to the hospital.

Luckily, no prison employees or civilians were harmed during or after the breakout.

The last inmate has finally been captured

The only inmate still on the run at this point was 24-year-old Andrew Kilpatrick. He was in prison on charges of possession of a controlled substance, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. However, Kilpatrick was finally caught shortly after 7 p.m.

on Tuesday night. He was captured at a home in the south end of Martin County, Florida by a team of law enforcement officials who had surrounded the community he was attempting to hide in.

Now that it is also over authorities can breathe a sigh of relief that all the inmates have been caught. Luckily for those in Walker County Jail that are fans of PB&J, Underwood said on Monday during the press conference that peanut butter will continue to be served despite the incident.
