Five Jasper county prisoners among 16 held temporarily in the Newton county jail at Neosho while the Jasper county jail is be- ing fumigated to exterminate ver- min, sawed out of a window on the top floor of the courthouse at Neosho about 9 o'clock Saturday night, but were recaptured. They sawed bars from the window to create an opening about by Inches, crawled tnrougn ana dropped about 12 feet to the roof of the first story of the court- house. About 9 o'clock Sheriff Russell Patterson saw Harold Williams, one of the prisoners being held on a. robbery charge, drop 20 feet from the roof to the ground and gave chase, firing three times. He overtook and recaptured Williams after a chase of three blocks. Pat- terson saw a second prisoner, Jim- my Tabb, preparing to leap and forced him at the point of his pis- tol to return inside the courthouse. A quick check of the cell block showed three of the 16 still miss- ing, 11 having made no attempt leave. Patterson telephoned Sher- iff George Tatum at Joplin and he went to Neosho accompanied by Deputies Frank Harris, Gene Copeland and Pat Robinson. Searching the premises with Pat- terson they discovered the other three fugitives crouching in a dark- ened corner on the roof below the jail window about 10 o'clock, ap- parently waiting for an opportune time to make a dash. Crawling: onto the roof through a window, the officers recaptured the threw and locked them up. They are Le- roy Tiffey and George Miller, Ok- lahomans, being held for trial on robbery and burglary charges, and Charles McGraw, who was serving a sentence for vagrancy. All 16 prisoners probably will be returned to the Jasper county jail about the middle of the week.
