Escape Prison, Can't Escape Room
Two women who escaped a Canadian prison are back in custody after police found them hiding out in an escape room.
23-year-old Kelsie Laine Marie Mast and 20-year-old Samantha Faye Toope hopped a fence at the prison in Edmonton and got away. They were on the run until the next day when they turned up at an escape room party place where participants are given a set amount of time to solve problems in order to escape a locked room. An employee told police the duo came in asking to see one of the rooms because they were considering booking a party.
Moments later, cops came in, secured the area and arrested the women inside the room. The owner of the business told the Edmonton Journal, "It's funny and ironic that escaped convicts run into an escape room and get caught."
