COQUILLE, Ore. -- A Coos County inmate briefly escaped into the streets of Coquille Thursday night.

Around 9:15 p.m., Dallas Bradley-Olson, 27, was on a cleaning crew and broke out the glass of the jail's front door.

The Coquille and Myrtle Point police departments assisted Coos County deputies and captured Bradley-Olson three blocks away.

He was already booked on charges of aggravated theft, felon in possession of a firearm, unlawful use of a vehicle, identity theft, and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Unknown to the sheriff's office, Bradley-Olson had been indicted in federal court by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives for additional charges on July 23.

He was treated for minor injuries at the hospital and placed in the high custody cell block to await trial.
