Women who escaped prison caught the next day in 'escape room' jail cell simulator
Two women who successfully escaped jail were later caught in a jail-cell simulation room in an escape room.
The women fled an Edmonton, Alberta, prison on Monday, but were arrested the next day at a so-called escape room.
Police tracked the women to the facility, which involved puzzle solving games to escape a room where participants are "locked in" mock dungeons.
While, they had managed to escape real prison just a day earlier the women failed to pull off another escape and were cornered by police.
Kelsie Laine Marie Mast, 23, and Samantha Faye Toope, 20, jumped a fence at Edmonton Institution for Women on Monday, police said.
The women were in jail for weapons offences, the BBC reports.
The bizarre scenario unfolded after police received a tip off that the women were spotted in the area.
Before they were apprehended they ducked into SideQuests Adventures escape room.
"They were extremely cool about it," Rebecca Liaw, co-owner of the escape room, told GlobalNews.
"They kept up a regular conversation, asking completely typical questions that we do get on a daily basis. Nothing out of the ordinary."
