Two of the juveniles who escaped from Rader Center in Sand Springs are back in custody in Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City Police say they were caught because they were committing another crime. The two teenagers have been on the run since last Thursday night, and the News On 6’s Ashli Sims reports police say it didn't take long before they were back up to their old ways.

It's been four days since the juvenile offenders escaped from Lloyd E. Rader Center in Sand Springs.

"They devised a plan to rush one of the workers, get the keys away from them, open the cottage door, and then the three of them ran off," said Sand Springs Police Captain Dan Graham.

Sand Springs Police say the trio disconnected part of the security fence and went under it. Police say somehow both of the 17-year-olds, Edward Moore and Joshua Callshim, ended up in Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City Police say officers got involved when after responding to a report of a stolen car at an EZ Mart in their city. They say a woman told officers she had gone into the convenience store and left her doors unlocked and the car running. Officers say she told them she saw Moore and Callshim get into her car. She tried to run out and stop them, even reaching her hand through the window, but police say Callshim rolled the window up, squeezing the victim's arm.

Police officers tracked down the teens again on Tuesday after the victim spotted her car at an Oklahoma City Wal-Mart with three teens inside. They were identified as Edward Moore, Joshua Callshim and 19-year old Joshua Kiehl. Police say the teens fled when they were confronted, but they were eventually arrested.

All three are being held in the Oklahoma County jail on possession of a stolen car. Callshim and Moore are also facing escape charges. The third escapee, Sean Batt, is still on the loose.
