Three people were arrested Thursday for their roles in helping three inmates escape the Bexar County Jail last week.

The inmates were able to get out by cutting a hole through some mesh that was about 20 feet off the ground.  They made their way down the fence using some bed sheets.

They were found at a Sonic restaurant near Blanco and Hildebrand.
