Transcript for Crafty Prisoners Escape Through Bathroom
Now to the growing manhunt for the four escaped inmates on the run after their daring jailbreak. The men following the plumbing pipes of a brand-new jail to freedom. Ryan owens is in oklahoma this morning with the latest on all that. Good morning, ryan. Reporter: Good morning to you, robin. Here it is. The very door those four waltzed right out of unnoticed. The story of how they got to the door from the inside is something you have to hear. Even the sheriff hunting the four admits they're crafty. They cooked up quite an escape. They were in jail. They have all the time in the world to think about how to do things. Reporter: The flight began in a jail bathroom. They unscrewed a metal plate on the shower ceiling. They hoisted themselves up to a crawl space five feet tall and three feet wide. One by one, they followed the squal's plumbing system. At the end of the pipes, authorities say the men knocked holes in the concrete. Dropped through the holes to the ground floor and walked right out the door. This is the door they came out of. Reporter: The sheriff thinks they may have been planning for a week. It was early sunday morning just before 3:00 when someone called the cops to say four guys were running down the streets in jail jump suits. Maybe they were halloween costumes, the caller thought. Police soon found the jump suits ditched in an alley near the fire station. A count at the jail showed they were gone. As of now, no leads. We'll hunt them until we find them. We'll get them sooner or later. Reporter: These four were here in the county jail waiting to be transferred to a state prison on a variety of drug and burglary charges. They did not commit their crimes together. They suspect they have already split up, which will make it all the more difficult to find them. Thank you, ryan. We turn to josh for the other developing stories this
