Inmates escape from Florida jail

Bilde_2 There's an all-out manhunt in Northwest Florida after two inmates escaped from the Santa Rosa County Jail over the weekend.

Ricky Dale Spears (top left) and David Chapell Dixon (below left) wiggled through a 12-inch square opening in the ceiling of their cell, made their way to the roof and jumped down to freedom.

Jail officials are blaming a "design flaw" for allowing the inmates to escape, and they're inspecting all parts of the facility for similar flaws.

Bilde2_2 Spears, a felon previously convicted of armed robbery and burglary, was awaiting trial on charges connected to the kidnapping of a 14-year-old girl. Dixon was in the clink after allegedly robbing a yogurt shop last year and trying to escape from jail (!!!) in February.
