Five inmates facing felony charges have escaped a Missouri detention facility, officials say.

On Tuesday, five inmates at the St. Francois County Detention Center in Farmington, Missouri, took advantage of "quite a coincidence" at the facility. The Francois County Sheriff's Department alleged that at around 7 p.m. that evening, Larry Bemboom, 52, Dakota Pace, 26, Aaron Sebastian, 30, Lujuan Tucker, 37, and Michael Wilkins, 40, managed to make their way to a "secure cell" and then "through a secured door by use of force." After crawling through plumbing and ventilation systems, they then supposedly climbed to the roof before descending onto the ground outside.
