Oregon jail inmates drunk on hand sanitizer escape on a ATV

 

Officials captured the two inmates less than 2 hours after they escaped

Officials said two inmates gave their guard the slip while working at a ranch, got drunk off hand sanitizer and took a stolen all-terrain vehicle on a joy ride.  

It happened at the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Rescue Ranch east of Bend. 

Four inmates from Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Adult Jail were at the ranch to perform chores under the supervision of a corrections deputy. 

Two of the inmates snuck out of a gate on the property using an ATV around 11:25 a.m. A 911 call alerted local authorities shortly after that two people matching their description were seen "doing cookies" near Arnold Market Road and Rimfire Road. 

State police officers tracked down the inmates on National Forest land near Lava Butte and they were taken back into custody less than two hours after their escape. 

Officials said the inmates, whom they identified as Christopher Turre and Shawn McCallister, drank hand sanitizer from a container on the jail transport van. 

The liquid is around 60% alcohol. 

Turre and McCallister face criminal mischief, escape and unauthorized use of a vehicle charges. McCallister also faces a felony attempt to allude charge and DUI.
