FORT SUPPLY, Okla. – Authorities in northeast Oklahoma said they were still looking Saturday for three men who escaped from a state prison at Fort Supply a day earlier.
William S. Key Correction Center warden's assistant Linda Eike identified the escaped men as 20-year-old Dennis W. Finch, 22-year-old Jake D. Trout and 20-year-old Christopher D. Hibl. She said they escaped around 10:15 p.m. Friday.
Jenny Colliston, dispatcher with the Woodward County sheriff's office, said Saturday that a residence near Fargo, south of Fort Supply, was broken into and some guns and clothing were taken. She said authorities thought the men were now armed and dangerous and that at least one of them has changed out of his inmate's uniform. The three are believed to be traveling on foot, she said.
According to descriptions provided by the prison, all three men are white and all three have several tattoos visible on their bodies.
The prison said Finch's tattoos say "Jamie," "California Boy" and "USMC," while Trout's tattoos include one reading "Hard" on his left arm, along with an image of a gecko, the words "Life-Death" a star, a clover and the word "Smash" and, on his right arm, the word "Tymes" with spelled with a "Y," along with a cross and "Luke 10:19." The prison said Hibl has the slogan "winners make it happen, losers make excuses" on his left arm and "TRAE 6-11-08" along with a drama mask on his right arm.
