A dozen prisoners at Jasper, Alabama's Walker County Jail escaped on Sunday and one is still at large. One of them used peanut butter to change the number above his cell door and then called for the guard, a new employee, to open it. The number the prisoner changed it to was actually the door to the outside.
"And unknowingly to (the guard), he hit that lock and out the door they went," said Walker County Sheriff Jim Underwood.
Eleven of the escapees were nabbed within eight hours. A manhunt is underway for the twelfth.
Meanwhile, as of right now, the Walker County sheriff said officials would look again at placing a young person in an control area to make decisions for 140 inmates. The camera system also needs to be equipped with more monitors, he added.
Despite the current sticky situation, the sheriff said he doesn't have plans to put any dietary restrictions in place in the future.
"They love peanut butter sandwiches," said Underwood.
