Santa Ana Inmates Film Their Escape
This video has emerged showing how three inmates broke out of the Central Men’s Jail in Santa Ana, California earlier this year.
The footage was shot on a contraband cellphone and shows the three inmates escaping through a vent which led to the roof.
The video doesn’t show how they got off the roof. Officials said the inmates used a rope of bed linens to get off the roof. The video also includes several photos that the three men took during their nearly a week on the run. The men are seeing smiling at the beach with a cabbie who they allegedly took hostage and forced to drive them to San Francisco. In other photos, they smile and pose in front of the Haight-Ashbury intersection. The video ends with two of the escapees smoking marijuana in the back of a van just two hours before they were recaptured.
