An inmate is on the run after escaping from the Oklahoma County Detention Center.

According to the jail, Nicholas Leach escaped Wednesday night while working with the maintenance department.

Leach stole a wireless remote to the back gate off a detention officer’s belt. He was also able to steal the detention officer’s car keys from a backpack.

Leach opened the gate, found the officer’s car and left the jail’s parking lot.

He was last seen driving a red 2008 Honda Civic. All the vehicle’s windows are tinted except the driver’s side window. Leach may be wearing a black OCDC logoed maintenance t-shirt.

Leach was booked in jail back in May for several charges including 2nd-degree burglary and false declaration to a pawnshop.
