Late Friday night, authorities continued to search for three prisoners who escaped from the Lincoln County jail in Chandler.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office reported Sonny Baker, 41, Brian Allen Moody, 23 and Mark Dwayne Robbins, 23, escaped about 11:26 p.m. Thursday.

Officials said the trio made their jail break by escaping through the building's air conditioner ventilation system; each were in custody for felony property-related crimes, the sheriff reported.

Deputies believe the fugitives fled in a pair of pickups that were stolen in Chandler; one truck did have a gun inside.

The sheriff's office reports one was a 2008 Dodge pickup quad cab, grey in color with Oklahoma tag AFK-030. The other was a 2004 Dodge pickup, grey, with Oklahoma tag 185-FGR.

According to sheriff's reports, the fugitives allegedly drove to Midwest City and used debit cards that were left in one of the trucks, but it was unknown where the inmates might have gone from there or if they have split up and gone separate ways.

Sheriff Charlie Dougherty told reporters that the trio escaped out of a pod with 24 total inmates. They are working with other agencies and have brought in additional manpower to search for the fugitives.

Moody was jailed on a $15,000 bond, while Baker was being held on a $50,000 bond. Both of them are from the southwestern part of Lincoln County. Robbins, who is from Shawnee, was being held on a $25,000 bond.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the escapees should call authorities immediately.
