Police are on the hunt for five inmates who escaped the St. Francois County Detention Center in Farmington, Missouri, through plumbing pipes, per The Daily Beast

The suspects, identified as Kelly McSean, Dakota Pace, Aaron Sebastian, LuJuan Tucker, and Michael Wilkins, reportedly found an entryway to the jail’s rooftop through the vents and pipes of the building’s plumbing system.

The group removed their orange jumpsuits and were caught on surveillance footage dressed in their undergarments,

“white thermal leggings, white boxers and/or basketball shorts and white T-shirts, except for Tucker, who was wearing a black shirt,”

the sheriff’s department told the outlet.

Surveillance video also shows the inmates taking off in a dark gray 2009 Toyota Scion with Missouri temporary plates and no front tag from the Centene Corporation’s parking lot at approximately 7 p.m., reports note. They were last seen on camera driving southbound, according to the sheriff’s department. 

All five men were being held on felony warrants and three of the inmates — Tucker, Sebastian, and McSean — are known sex offenders, authorities said per NBC News.
