WEATHERFORD, Okla. (AP) - Police in Oklahoma recaptured eight inmates after a transport van went missing when guards apparently left them alone with the keys.
A Weatherford police dispatcher says Lester Burns and Michael Coleman are back in custody after being recaptured in a backyard not far from where the van and other six inmates were found.
A shotgun left in the van and the van was also recovered.
Police say the inmates were left in locked compartments in the van and that two kicked out a partition and were able to get to the front of the van that apparently had been left running.
