Borderline Prison Break Stopped...

It wasn't exactly "The Shawshank Redemption" or even "Prison Break," but authorities said a serious escape attempt at the Stillwater prison was thwarted when a staff member discovered the beginnings of a "well-hidden sophisticated underground tunnel" in the basement of one of the prison's industry buildings.

There are no surveillance cameras in the area where the tunnel was found Wednesday morning, officials said Thursday. Four inmates work in that area under the supervision of one corrections officer. The area is used for inventory and storage of raw materials for other prison industries.

Warden Lynn Dingle said those four inmates are being questioned, but she would not say they were suspects in the escape attempt or identify them or the crimes that put them in prison.
