WILLIAMS, Ariz. (AP) - Williams, Ariz., police think three escaped inmates from Oklahoma have left northern Arizona. Police said Tuesday afternoon they believe the trio are headed westbound on Interstate 40 and may be in another state.
The three are suspected of stealing a car in Holbrook, Ariz., and then traveled to Williams, 35 miles east of Flagstaff.
Williams police say that after the three arrived, they dumped the stolen car from Holbrook and then took a pickup truck from a Williams residence early Tuesday.
Investigators think the inmates are responsible for the theft and damage of several other vehicles found Tuesday morning.
The three inmates are identified as 20-year-old Dennis Finch, 22-year-old Jake Trout and 20-year-old Christopher Hibl. They escaped Friday night from the William S. Key Correctional Center at Fort Supply.
Police think the three are armed with numerous stolen weapons.
