    Harley Davidson and Rakeem Lennox waited for guard staff to leave an area near their room 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, Choctaw County Sheriff Terry Park told The Oklahoman.

    “(They) got the key to the laundry room door while jailers were busy in other parts of the jail,” Park said on Facebook. “Both took off to see their girlfriends and smoke weed.”

    They returned to the jail on foot around midnight. 

    Davidson was in jail for drug possession and other charges. Lennox was in jail for burglary charges. They both were charged with escape from a penal institution.
