Twelve prisoners were on the run from a US prison after fooling a guard using peanut butter.

The men tricked the young guard by covering an Alabama prison exit door number with the spread.

When the employee hit the button to open the door, which he believed led to a cell and not to the exit, the men fled the facility.

The inmates then used their orange prison uniforms and blankets to jump over the 12-foot razor wire fence.

The new guard described the inmates fleeing as “crazy like a fox”, according to Fox News.

Eleven of the men who escaped on Sunday were tracked down and returned to prison within 12 hours, but the final escapee managed to hide until Tuesday evening.

Brady Andrew Kilpatrick, 24, managed to flee the county, according to the local sheriff’s Facebook page.

He was later captured by police in Tequesta, Florida.

“The inmates took advantage of a new guard by using peanut butter to conceal an exit door number,” the Walker County Alabama Sheriff’s Office said.

“When the inmates called for the guard to open the door and let them in a cell, the guard inadvertently opened the exit door.”

The county prison is now looking at ways of renumbering the doors “in a way that peanut butter won’t have any effect on them,” Mr Underwood said, adding that the scheme to use the spread was “very smart thinking on their part”.
