It’s the start of a new month of sleuthing. I can’t wait to discover new challenges to share with you!

Tomorrow we will announce the Winner for the month of April and announce the prizes for May’s Super Sleuth of the Month.

Breaking out of prison is no small feat. There is even a whole television show dedicated to the study of breaking out of prison.

Do you think if you went to prison you would be able to find a way to get out alive?

I’m reasonably sure I’d be caught rather quickly. But there are some masterminds of prison breakouts that have found success more than once breaking out of the Big House.

How are people breaking out of jail these days? That is your Super Sleuth Challenge below.

Which of the Following Criminal Jailbreaks Are Real?

A.  Ten Minute Explosive Breakout. Six men drove up to the front gate of a prison in fake police cars, police uniforms, and ski masks. Some of the men fired AK 47s at the two to guard towers. The others took out the front gate with rocket-propelled grenade launchers. Meanwhile, the prisoner blew open his cell door with a stick of dynamite.

B. Mom’s 18 Wheel Genius. In broad daylight an inmate’s friend drove his 18-wheel truck through four prison gates. The inmate’s mother followed in her Cutlass Supreme to pick him up. They used a shotgun to shoot at the guards and all piled into the Cutlass to escape.

C. Perfect Fly Zone. Discovering that the prison where a friend was being held had an open sky area, some friends stole a helicopter. Dropping it in to pick up their buddy and take off.

D. All of the Above.

What do you say, super sleuths?

Are these plans all prison breakouts attempted with some success? OR Which one do you think really happened?

    I’ve heard of two of these, so am voting for all three–though they seem amazing. I did volunteer Bible teaching at a women’s prison for 3 years & have given some thought to escape. Always nice to come back out of those locked doors . . .

  2. Truth is stranger than fiction, so I would think that they’re all true. They’re all unbelievable! Ha!

  3. I think they are all true. Great Sleuthing!!

    I would think that they all might have been tried but I doubt that the first one would meet with much success because the inmate who blew up his cell door would probably be seriously injured if not killed in the explosion. I’d vote for the second one. I could see a 18 wheeler going through the gates.

  5. I can’t imagine how a prisoner would get a stick of dynamite so I am voting number one is false. So it is probably true!
