Two inmates fled from a cell on the 12th floor of the Oklahoma County Jail in Oklahoma City on Friday morning via a rope they’d tied together from bedsheets.

Pablo Daniel Robledo, who faces a first-degree murder charge over an alleged gang shooting, went on the run for several hours after successfully shimmying down the makeshift escape route, reported The Oklahoman.

Robledo, 34, whose trial is reportedly due to start on Aug. 31, was detained some six miles away on Friday afternoon following a coordinated search effort involving multiple law enforcement agencies. He was taken back to the jail.

**UPDATE**Pablo Daniel Roble, the inmate who escaped from Oklahoma County Jail early this morning, has been taken into CUSTODY!!!
