Residents in the rural areas of Anadarko, Okla., were urged to lock their doors Sunday morning after four inmates escaped through the jail’s plumbing system.

Authorities said that at about 2 a.m., Dylan Ray Three Irons, 21, Prime Tounwin Brown, 23, Anthony James Mendonca, 24, and Triston Cheadle, 32, pried open a hatch above a shower head in a bathroom at the Caddo County Detention Center and sneaked through a pipe that led to an unlocked door to the outside, the New York Daily News reported.

Caddo County Sheriff Gene Cain told the Associated Press that Irons and Brown were recaptured and detained Monday, while inmates Mendonca and Cheadle are still at large.

“All they had to do was push the door and walk out because it’s not in the jail,” Sheriff Cain told Fox News.

The inmates’ orange jumpsuits were found outside the jail, the Daily News said.

“In a small town, stuff like this is not supposed to happen,” an Anadarko resident told KOCO-TV. “I hope they’re not at my house when I get back.”

The inmates were being held for unrelated crimes, including burglary, weapons and drug possession, the Daily News reported.
