Yesterday, we shared a story about the 12 Alabama inmates that escaped from Walker County jail in Jasper.
As of this morning, only one is still on the run.
However, the story has taken a strange turn.
Residents near the jail were furious that drug dealers and murderers were on the loose near their homes and threatened to "shoot on site".
They also demanded answers for how this could have happened.
And now we know....
It's a little unbelievable so I will have to use an exact quote from the press release.
According to Sheriff James Underwood, "They changed the number over the door with peanut butter,"
"(Then) they hollered, 'Hey, open door' so-and-so, but (the number the inmates gave the worker) was the outside door."
"And unknowingly to him, he hit that lock and out the door they went."
The jailer was a newbie who became confused about the numbers on the doors.
The inmates then threw blankets over the barbed wire and were free.
Peanut butter was the secret to a mass jailbreak of 12 prisoners from Walker County Jail in Alabama, US. The group used the spread, which was taken from prison sandwiches, to alter the number of an inmate's cell door to a number identifying a door leading outside. The inmate, whose cell door was altered, then asked a newly-employed and inexperienced guard to open his cell door. The guard, who was watching on a CCTV camera from a control room, inadvertently opened the outside door. Eleven of the group were recaptured within 8 hours but one individual remains at large. #prison #break #USA #America #jail #Peanutbutter #Food #escape #guards #news #Krudenews
