JAY — Authorities are searching for two inmates who escaped from a northeast Oklahoma jail early Wednesday.

Delaware County Sheriff Harlan Moore says 51-year-old Pete Wolfe and 22-year-old Anthony Anderson escaped the county jail at about 1:45 a.m. Wednesday. Authorities say the inmates broke a window to escape from the detention center.

Wolfe was being held on a charge of attempted robbery with a weapon. Anderson was in jail on a failure to pay warrant in connection with a 2010 plea to second-degree rape.

The sheriff says law enforcement officers from Delaware County and the Cherokee Nation and the police departments in Jay and Grove are assisting in the search. has disabled the comments for this article.
