Four inmates who are considered “extremely dangerous” escaped from a county jail in Ohio early Sunday morning after overpowering two guards, the authorities said.

The inmates used a homemade weapon known as a shank and stole the keys to a corrections officer’s vehicle, which was used in the first part of their escape from the Gallia County Jail, Sheriff Matt Champlin said at a news conference.

He said the inmates, all men, had help from at least one individual on the outside.

The authorities said that a second vehicle was waiting for the inmates about a block from the jail and was later found in an unspecified part of Pennsylvania.
