CUSTER COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - Two inmates escaped from jail after overpowering a deputy and locking her in a cell.
The Custer County Sheriff's Office says then men were able to steal the deputy's jail keys and radio and were also able to get keys to a minivan, which they used as their getaway vehicle.
"They told [the deputy] they didn't want to hurt her, but they wanted the keys," said Custer County Sheriff Shannon Byerly. "... They didn't assault her more than basically what it took to subdue her and force her into the cell. Once they got her in there they locked the cell down then they unlock the pod, got out into the office and left through the front door."
