WALKER COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — Authorities went on a two-day hunt for an inmate who used peanut butter to escape from the Walker County Jail on Sunday.
Brady Kilpatrick, along with 11 other inmates, tricked a young jailer to open a door leading to the outside by using peanut butter to change the door number. By Monday, deputies had recaptured 11 of the 12 inmates.
Authorities captured 24-year-old Kilpatrick on Tuesday in Tequesta, Florida. Officials say he was driven to Florida by his 18-year-old half-sister Jensen Lefan and her 24-year-old boyfriend Hayden Mayberry. All three are waiting to be extradited back to Alabama.
Kilpatrick is scheduled to be in court in Martin County, Florida on Wednesday. He is currently being held without bond, and could potentially face additional charges in Martin County.
Kilpatrick’s mother told CBS 42 that she received a phone call from her son shortly after he escaped, but she had no idea about his plans. Kilpatrick was in jail for possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and second-degree possession of marijuana.
The incident with the Walker County jailer who opened the door will be handled internally.
