Authorities are on the lookout for a suspect who escaped from a McClain County deputy’s vehicle after being arrested for burglary in Goldsby, Okla. on Thursday.

According to the sheriff’s office, three men were caught breaking into a home in Goldsby earlier on Thursday and were all taken into custody.

While awaiting transport to jail, one of the suspects, identified as 31-year-old Curtis Johnson, escaped from the back of the deputy’s vehicle and fled on foot while still handcuffed. He was last seen running south of the Goldsby airport.
