Authorities in Florida have captured the last of the dozen prisoners who fled an Alabama county jail in a scheme involving peanut butter.

Florida’s Martin County Sheriff's Office announced on social media that local deputies and the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force captured 24-year-old Brady Andrew Kilpatrick last night about 20 miles north of West Palm Beach.

Kilpatrick was being held in the Walker County jail on marijuana and drug paraphernalia charges when he and 11 other prisoners fled Sunday night.

Walker County Sheriff James Underwood says prisoners used peanut butter to change the numbers above a door in order to trick a new employee into opening another door that led outside. They then used their jail uniforms and blankets to climb over a razor wire topped fence.

The other 11 escapees were captured within 12-hours of the incident.
