OKLAHOMA - U.S. Marshals are still searching for two of four inmates who broke out of an Anadarko prison. They now believe a woman is helping them elude authorities.

Four inmates escaped last Sunday by opening a trap door above the jail showers and crawling their way to another door.

"At that time, they just had to open the door and go out." Sheriff Gene Cane said.

Dylan Three Irons and Prime Brown were captured the next day in Chickasha, but Thomas Johnson and Tristan Cheadle are still on the run.

U.S. Marshals are warning you to be on the lookout for the two men and a woman. They believe Stephanie Leehmuis could be an old girlfriend who met up with them and is now helping them.

Leehmuis now has the name "Tristan" tattooed above her right eye.

Police say the trio is armed and dangerous and if you see them, call 911.

"We're not for sure they're armed, but you gotta think they might be.  We know they wasn't when they left, but we don't know what they picked up after." Sheriff Cane said.

Johnson and Cheadle have ties to Anadarko, Chickasha and the Oklahoma City metro.

Thomas Johnson also uses two aliases, Thomas Jinx and Anthony Medonca.

U.S. Marshals are offering a 2,000 reward for information that leads to their capture.
