CATOOSA, Okla. - Authorities say none of the five people taken into custody in Rogers County on Tuesday evening are the Lincoln County Jail four escapees from Monday.

Four men and one woman were brought out of a house in Rogers County in handcuffs, after law enforcement surrounded the house most of the afternoon. After questioning, authorities say only one of the five will be charged with any crime. The other four have been released.

Authorities went into the home just after 5:15 p.m. and the five were brought out cuffed. 

Before authorities went into the home with their guns drawn, about 5-10 other individuals were guided away from the home by police. 

Earlier in the afternoon, Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton said a black SUV was found abandoned on E. 570 Road. He said he believed the escapees used this vehicle. Sheriff Walton says the license plate doesn't match the vin number, but it's not confirmed that the SUV was stolen.

A very large police presence was at the residence and neighbors' nerves are on edge as they await word on whether any of these men were escapees, and if not, wondering where they are.
