Ohio law enforce­ment author­i­ties said on Mon­day the inmate who briefly escaped a state prison last week before he was tack­led and tied up with rope at a small gen­eral store used lad­ders to get out of three fenced areas.

A spokesper­son for the Ohio State High­way Patrol said James Myers got the lad­ders last Wednes­day night after he hid out in a main­te­nance area of the prison where he worked as a car­pen­ter.

The fence alarm of Mans­field Cor­rec­tional Insti­tu­tion went off that night and that’s where cor­rec­tions staff found the lad­ders Myers used to escape.
