jailbreak

A whopping one dozen inmates escaped an Alabama jail on Sunday evening, including two facing attempted murder charges, authorities said.

Eight of the runaway inmates were rounded up by 10:45 p.m. local time, about four hours after breaking out of the Walker County Jail in Jasper, about 33 miles northwest of Birmingham.

The Walker County Sheriff’s Office offered few details on how the escape unfolded but shared mug shots for the outstanding inmates and offered a $500 reward for tips to an arrest.

Police identified the escaped inmates charged with attempted murder as Steven Lamb, 28, and Christopher Smith, 19. Lamb was captured just before 11 p.m. local time.

The remaining on-the-loose inmates were identified as Larry Inman Jr., 29, Ethan Pearl, 24, and Brady Kilpatrick, 24.

Police have already captured Michael McGuff, 30; Johnny Hunter, 26; Christopher Spain, 18; Kristopher Secrest, 20; Quadrekas Key, 21; Timothy Cooper, 28; and Steven Hartley, 27.

The Birmingham News reports the inmates escaped around 6:30 p.m.

The Jasper jail facility, a brick building on the edge of the city’s downtown, only holds 250 inmates, according to its website.
