The escape was reported on April 6 after Guns underwent a medical exam. Guns reportedly climbed over several fences and walls during the escape.

Her clothes were found in an open field near the jail and police dogs traced her to the back of a shopping center before losing her trail.

Guns was first arrested on April 1 for possession of a stolen car. She was recaptured on April 11. Details on where she was spotted are still unclear.
