McKitrick was incarcerated for aggravated robbery.

Hamilton was serving time for tampering with evidence.

Investigators say the two made their escape by using a drawer from a locker to smash out a window in their dormitory. 

Investigators say a woman was waiting in a truck outside, picked the two men up, and then drove back across the yard outside from the minimum-security lockup, before heading onto Murray Ridge Road.

That woman has since been arrested.
