A dozen inmates escaped from the Walker County, Alabama, jail over the weekend using peanut butter. It was actually kind of slick.

The inmates pained over the number on an outside door with peanut butter and renumbered it. A new officer in the control booth then got suckered by the prisoners into opening the door to the outside.

Eleven of the prisoners were recaptured nearby fairly quickly. The outstanding escapee was a doper.

The prisoners got out of the building at about 6:20 p.m. and were over the fence in about ten minutes. The control booth officer thought he was opening a cell door. Odd that he didn't think it strange that there were twelve guys going into one cell. Although it is also possible he realized right away something was wrong and sounded an alarm but the prisoners got over the fence anyway.
