They sawed bars from the window to create an opening about 8 by l"* inches, crawled chrougn ana dropped about 12 feet to the roof of the first story of the courthouse. 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 blocka. Patterson saw a second prisoner. Jimmy Tabb, preparing to leap and forced him at the point of his pistol to return inside the courthouse.

Patterson telephoned Sheriff George Tatum at Joplin and he went to Neosho accompanied by Deputies Frank Harris, Gene Copeland and Pat Robinson. Searching the premises with Patterson they discovered the other three fugitives crouching in a darkened corner on the roof below the jail window about 10 o'clock, apparently waiting for an opportune time to make a dash.
