The Liberty County Sheriff’s Office and the Texas Rangers have found two men who they say escaped from the county jail early Tuesday morning by cutting through a fence.

Authorities searched for 44-year-old Clay Sterling Harvey who was in jail on a charge of Manufacturing and Delivery of a Controlled Substance. They also searched for 28-year-old Chance Marshall Hunt, who was in jail for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, according to the sheriff’s office.
