Twelve inmates escaped from a prison in Alabama after using peanut butter to trick a guard into unlocking a door that led outside, police say.

The men fled the facility after confusing a new member of staff by smearing the peanut butter over a number on an exit door.

The inmates then used their orange prison uniforms and blankets to overcome a razor wire fence.

All 12 of the fugitives who escaped on Sunday have since been recaptured.

Eleven of the men were tracked down and returned to custody within 12 hours of the prison break, but the final escapee managed to evade authorities until Tuesday evening.

Brady Andrew Kilpatrick, 24, was the only prisoner to make it out of the county, according to the local sheriff’s Facebook page.

He was later captured by police in Tequesta, Florida.
