Two Florida prisoners who used forged documents to escape knew it was just a matter of time before they were caught.

Frank Chiumento is chief of the U.S. Marshals Service for Florida and the Caribbean. He told The Associated Press on Sunday that Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker knew their time on the run was limited once word of the forgeries became public.

Chiumento said once the escape was publicized, the two prisoners hooked up together and traveled to Panama City, where they lay low for about two and a half days.

He said the men did not know they were being watched and were surprised when the marshals knocked on their door.

The two were arrested without incident Saturday night at the motel.
