PRYOR, OK — Two escapees, described as armed and dangerous, apprehended by Mayes County Sheriff's deputies.

Pete Wolf, 51, Pryor and Scott Anderson, 21, Sapulpa broke out of the Delaware County Jail early Wednesday morning.

“Delaware County called us to give us the heads up they might come this way. Wolf is from Pryor and had connections north of Salina,” said Mayes County Sheriff Mike Reed, who said law enforcement performed an extensive search in the Pryor area.

“We were pinging the cell phone of Wolf’s girlfriend, around the Mayor Wallis Apartments,” Reed said. “That lady has been turned over for investigation in Delaware County.”

One deputy knew an area north of Salina where Wolf had relatives, Reed said.

“My deputies went looking, and Pryor Police Department assisted. One deputy got a tip they were in  Spavinaw,” Reed said. “So they searched that area, and that's where the found their orange jumpsuits. So the deputies knew they were close. They exhausted the search in that area.”

Deputies returned to the Salina area to wait, in hopes the duo would turn up, Reed said.

“Around 6:30 p.m. a call came in that a couple of people were walking down the road there in Salina,” said Reed. “Our deputies pulled up and it was them. The deputies were able to apprehend them without them running off.”

Reed said the arrest was made without incident

“It was Deputy Johnny Jenkins and Deputy Robert Carlisle that made the arrest,” said Reed, who is housing the escapees in the Mayes County Jail while Delaware County determines its course of action.

Wolf was wanted for assault and battery and Anderson was wanted for second degree rape.
