HAZARD, Ky. (AP) -- Eastern Kentucky authorities are plagued with a series of jail inmate escapes this week.

WYMT-TV in Hazard reported Getson Roberts was caught hours after escaping from the Clay County Detention Center. He was found in Laurel County.

But three others remained at large Wednesday.

Brandon Damron slipped away on work release while an inmate at the Pike County Detention Center. Ricky Hendrix found an unlocked door at the Leslie County Detention center and used it to get away. William Feltner jumped from a moving inmate transfer van on the way to the Kentucky River Regional Jail.

Deputy Jailer Clarence Dalton says all inmates have to do all day is figure ways to get out and sometimes they succeed.
