Otterville, MO --- Four inmates, including one man suspected of a series of crimes in Florida, broke out of police custody today by igniting trash from a prison waste container and then escaping via temporary passageway originally intended for prison staff, an FBI investigator disclosed today.
Other inmates and prison officials quickly extinguished the blaze set by the inmates.
Short of sustaining burns, smoke inhalation can be the greatest danger posed by a fire, officials said.
Sheriff Matthew Sones said the escapees were Ronald White, 25; Jerry Dinkel, 26; Randall Booker, 30; and Tim Tomassi, 28.
"This is not going to happen again, you can bet on that," Sones said. "A guy like Ronald White is not going to hesitate to harm people who get in his way. We're going to be running dogs on scent for this case all night if we have to."
What is this thing?
I don`t care, just do it again.
