The runaway inmates then used a blanket to climb over a razor wire perimeter fence and make their escape.

Until yesterday, Brady Andrew Kilpatrick, 24, of Cordova, Alabama was still on the lam, but yesterday he was arrested near West Palm Beach.

Three other people accused of aiding and abetting his escape also were arrested at the house, including his sister and her fiance, who authorities said picked Kilpatrick up by vehicle in Alabama and drove him more than 700 miles south into Florida.

"Changing some numbers on the door with peanut butter - that may sound insane", the county sheriff, James E. Underwood, said at a news conference on Monday.

Sheriff James Underwood said "that door number was the outside door". They are facing aiding and abetting charges. "He just picked the wrong county to come and hide out in".

The first eleven prisoners were captured within 12-hours of the escape.

All twelve of the inmates who escaped an Alabama prison by tricking a guard into opening an exist door have been recaptured.

Snyder praised his department and other agencies for using a "good tactical approach" once they located the home in Tequesta, where a vehicle with an Alabama license plate was parked outside.

Kilpatrick is expected to appear in court in Stuart, Florida, Wednesday afternoon, and will eventually be returned to Alabama.

"Look, I don't like to brag", the sheriff told reporters, "but we've never had an escape from the Martin County Jail".
