OKEMAH — The U.S. Marshal Fugitive Task Force is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the capture of a man who escaped from the Okfuskee County jail Monday night and is considered armed and dangerous.

Okfuskee County Chief Deputy Mark Trunk said officials are still looking for Keith Dewayne Smith Sr., 45, who escaped with another inmate about 9:30 p.m. Monday from the jail.

The other inmate, Gerald Adams, 40, was caught about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday behind an Okemah bank, a jail official said.

Trunk said the two men used a hacksaw blade to saw through the cell bars. He said it's unknown how the two obtained the saw.

Officials are investigating the escape and have provided extra security at the jail.

Smith was last seen in eastern Okemah city limits. He is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds. He has red hair that has been shaved and hazel eyes.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts should call 911, the Okfuskee County sheriff's office at (918) 623-1122, or the Tulsa U.S. Marshals Service at (918) 581-7738.
