Both men are from Cleveland County.

Ramey was serving nine to 11 months for felony breaking and entering, possession of stolen goods and various misdemeanors. He was scheduled for release in July 2010.

Authorities did not say what the latest charges stemming from the escape are or how their sentences will be affected.
