Two Oklahoma inmates were captured Monday, but two other escapees remained on the loose after the men broke out of a county jail through the shower room crawl space over the weekend. Police said they caught up with Dylan Ray Three Irons, 21, and Prime Tounwin Brown, 23, looking wet and dirty, at a convenience store in Chickasha, where they attempted to make a run for it before they were arrested, according to a news release. Officials said Three Irons and Brown, along with Triston Cheadle, 32, and Anthony James Mendonca, 24, had escaped from the Caddo County jail in nearby Anadarko early Sunday morning.

This year, the moon is your friend and will appear as a thin crescent that shouldn't spoil your view of the shooting stars.
