OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A prisoner who allegedly used a dummy as a decoy in his escape from a Hodgen-area correctional facility was found in Oklahoma City’s Bricktown area and taken back into custody.

Williams is suspected of placing some sort of dummy on his bed, covering it with a blanket and then walking away from the Southeast Oklahoma correctional facility.

Corrections staff performed a full sweep on the facility and the grounds before realizing Williams was not on the premises.

He is in prison for drug trafficking, but will now face an additional escape charge.
