Full Coverage: Three inmates escape from Orange County jail

Jonathan Tieu, 20; Bac Duong, 43; and Hossein Nayeri, 37, escaped from the Men’s Central Jail in Santa Ana on Jan. 22. To escape, they had to cut through at least four layers of metal, steel and rebar in the dormitory, go through unsecured plumbing tunnels and make their way to the roof, where they used a makeshift rope of knotted bedsheets and cloth to rappel to freedom, said Lt. Jeffrey Hallock, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
