Lincoln County, OK - Four inmates escaped from an Oklahoma jail early Monday morning, according to Fox News. Three inmates were serving time for property crimes, and one inmate is pending trial for first-degree murder.
The incident occurred between 1 and 4 AM at the Lincoln County Jail. The inmates escaped through an air vent.
A massive manhunt is in progress for all four inmates, whose names and descriptions are below:
Jeremy Irvin, age 32, white male, white, 6’1,″ (weight not given), brown hair and hazel eyes. Brian Moody, age 23, white male, 5’2,″ 102 pounds, blond hair and hazel eyes. Trey Goodnight, age 27, white male, 5’6,″ 145 pounds, blond hair and hazel eyes. Sonny Baker, 41, white male, 5’8,″ 145 pounds, blond hair and blue eyes.
Moody, Baker, and Goodnight have pending property crime charges, and Irvin has a pending first-degree murder charge.
Two of the inmates, Moody and Baker, broke out of the same jail on March 16, and through the same ventilation system. They were captured and apprehended the following week in March.
At the time of the first escape, Lincoln County Sheriff Charles Dougherty said, "They had to scale over a wire fence to accomplish that. Nobody even thought it was possible, but we were proven wrong." He said in March that "repairs were being made," and that "staff is redesigning parts of the jail to prohibit future escapes by this means."
Residents in the area have been urged to take 'precautions', and to call police if they see anything suspicious, according to KFOR. Investigators are checking phone records from the jail for the last 24 hours to see if there is any activity that might be linked to the missing inmates. Multiple sightings are being reported.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is searching Cleveland Countr on Monday afternoon after a stolen truck was found abandoned there. It had been reported stolen from Chandler overnight. Other officers are searching near Chandler after a report was received of a home being burglarized of cash and cigarettes.
