Only two of the inmates who escaped from the Miller County Jail on Tuesday remain at large.
Twenty-four-year-old Codarrius Morris was found just before 5 pm Wednesday at an apartment complex just a few miles from the jail. Just before 6:30 pm Wednesday, 40-year-old Kenneth Riley was picked up in Ashville, AR.
This apparently isn't Riley's first jail break. Authorities say he also escaped from the Little River County jail while serving time there.
Still on the loose are: 23-year-old Benny Johnson, and 30-year-old Anthony Brown. Investigators believe one of the remaining escapees, Anthony Brown could be headed to West Texas. As for Bennie Johnson, they believe he could still be in the area. Investigators don't believe Brown and Johnson are dangerous, but they still caution residents to be on the lookout.
For the third time this year the bars that are suppose to keep the inmates inside the Miller County Correctional Facility became their main escape route to get out.
"It's past an emergency. You can plan for an emergncy," said Sheriff Linda Rambo.
Five men managed to escape by cutting through the bars from a second story window around 9:30 Tuesday night. Miller County Sheriff Linda Rambo says she has been asking for more equipment and cameras to watch the inmates. Rambo says the inmates had more than enough time to plan their escape.
"They had a hacksaw and started working around 2 o'clock in the afternoon & finished right before dark," she said.
KSLA News 12 was allowed inside the jail where inmates we spoke with said the guards pay very little attention to them during the day, and the same bars used during Tuesday nights escape were also used during another escape in April of this year. Inmates say the escapes had been plannng for weeks.
Inmates say its more difficult getting inside than getting out. That's something jail officials are working to control.
