2 of 4 Ottawa County Jail Escapees in custody

MIAMI, Okla. — Tuesday afternoon about 2:45 p.m., October 4, 2022, four inmates escaped from the Ottawa County Jail at Miami, Okla.

“After investigating the escape, the inmates that ran from the jail were not on a work detail. They were in one of the dorm style pods and there were contractors working in the pod. When the contractors left to go to the sally port to work on some metal, the inmates ran out of the pod and to the north doors that lead into the sally port. The north doors were open and the sally port door was open due to the contractors cutting and welding metal. Once the inmates got to the north doors they pushed the jailers out of the way and ran out of the jail. One inmate was caught immediately, which was Rusty Reece.

When the first post was made the Undersheriff was posting what he was first told to get the information out, then was out looking for the inmates.
During the beginning of this is when the shooting happened which was not related to the escape.” — Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office

  • Buck Martindale, wearing lime green shirt and orange jail pants
  • **IN CUSTODY** Tyler Tavis, dirty white shirt and black pants
  • Daniel Zajicek, dirty white shirt and black shorts
