COLUMBUS, Ohio - Law enforcement authorities in Ohio say the inmate who briefly escaped a state prison last week before he was tackled and tied up with rope at a small general store used three ladders to get out of three fenced areas.
Ohio State Highway Patrol spokeswoman Lt. Anne Ralston on Monday said James David Myers got a hold of the ladders Wednesday night after he hid in a maintenance area where he worked as a carpenter. The ladders were inside a locked maintenance building at the facility outside Mansfield.
Ralston says the prison's fence alarm went off and officers found the ladders at that point.
Workers at the general store have said Myers asked to use the phone and bought an iced tea before a customer tackled him.
