Prisoner Used Ladders To Escape

Jul 9, 2013

The State Highway Patrol says the inmate who escaped from the Mansfield Correctional Institution last week used three ladders to get out of three fenced areas.

Patrol Lieutenant Anne Ralston says James 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. Myers was recaptured at a general store in Ashland.
