LURAY, Va. (AP) -- Two Page County inmates have been indicted on escape charges.

A Page County grand jury charged 21-year-old Jonathan O'Donnell of Rileyville and 18-year-old Tayvon Clark of Cheverly, Md., on Monday with felony escape.

The sheriff's office says the men were being held at the Page County Jail in Luray on larceny-related charges when they escaped last Thursday. They were captured about three hours later at a house.

Sheriff John Thomas tells The Daily News-Record ( ) that he believes someone helped the men escape. He says investigators believe a fence in an outdoor exercise area was damaged from the outside.

The inmates are now being held at Middle River Regional Jail in Verona.
