McALESTER, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Department of Corrections says an inmate at the minimum-security Jackie Brannon Correctional Center in McAlester has escaped.
A DOC news release says that 39-year-old Christopher Jacobs was discovered missing around 10 a.m. on Saturday.
The department says other inmates told investigators that Jacobs walked away from the unfenced prison and got into a vehicle that then left the area.
Jacobs was serving a five year sentence for grand larceny, burglary, false impersonation, possession of stolen property, and vehicle theft.
