A quartet of prison escapees made it out of Huttonsville
Correctional Center near Mill Creek, West Virginia, all right, but
their luck turned bad when their getaway driver, in a car loaded
with beer and whiskey, was stopped by police and arrested before she
could meet them. The criminals decided to attempt a foot escape
through mountains where, as one deputy put it, the residents have
guns in their homes and know how to use them. When two emerged from
the cold, rainy woods, they ran into armed citizen Vencil Hannah.
Aware the convicts might be in the area, Hannah grabbed his .22
rifle when he heard his dog bark, and confronted the pair. Hannah's
next door neighbor, a deputy, was quickly summoned to the scene to
take the prisoners back into custody.
