FORT SUPPLY, Okla. -- Three inmates who escaped from a minimum-security prison are back in custody, officials said.

Department of Corrections spokesman Jerry Massie says 21-year-old Antonio Guido Jr., 20-year-old Robert Reese and 19-year-old Norman Watkins escaped the William S. Key Correctional Center in Fort Supply shortly after 7 a.m. Tuesday.

Massie said the men were placed back in custody at 3:30 p.m.

Massie says the three were waiting in a line to receive medication when they ran away from the unfenced prison.

Massie says Watkins was serving time for burglary, larceny and concealing stolen property from Craig County and Reese was in the prison for burglary and concealing stolen property from Garfield County.

Guido was being held for bail jumping out of Caddo County.
