3 inmates apprehended after separate escapes from 2 Oklahoma minimum-security prisons


WOODWARD, Oklahoma — The Oklahoma Department of Corrections says three inmates who walked away from two minimum-security prisons have been recaptured.

Authorities say 19-year-old Dylan Trecker and 30-year-old William Snail were discovered missing Monday morning from the William S. Key Correctional Center in Fort Supply. The corrections department says Trecker and Snail were discovered later Monday near Woodward riding stolen four-wheelers on a highway.

Both were apprehended without incident. Trecker was convicted in Pottawatomie County for burglary and concealing stolen property, while Snail was convicted in Delaware County of arson and burglary.

In a separate case, 39-year-old Robert Janni walked away Sunday from the Oklahoma State Reformatory in Granite. The corrections department says Janni was captured Monday in Altus while riding a stolen bicycle.

Janni was convicted in LeFlore County of burglary.
