Two fugitives who escaped prison nabbed after asking gendarmes direction
Two fugitives who escaped from a prison in western Turkey have been detained after they asked security forces for directions.
The theft and drug trafficking convicts identified as Halit Akbaş, 20, and Kadir İstek, 28, managed to escape from the Çınarlıkuyu Prison in the Manisa province late Jan. 29.
According to local media reports, the two convicts who reached the town were confused about which direction they should walk, so they asked a patrolling gendarmerie unit.
The convicts then started to run away after the security forces became suspicious.
They were caught and sent back to prison later in the day, the reports said.
