It took law enforcement around four hours to capture two prisoners who escaped early Saturday morning.
Twenty two year old Kevin Gildhouse, and 29 year old tony Jackson were able to escape from the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center
Gildhouse is in for first degree murder and armed robbery. Jackson is awaiting extradition back to Florida for charges of armed carjacking.
At the time of their escape both men were considered armed and dangerous. They overpowered two deputies with a sharp weapon, took their uniforms and made off wearing them. They were caught by daybreak off of Ambassador Caffery near the Super One Foods. The sheriff's Department is further investigating the escape.
