A fellow prisoner at the jail said that Cai planned the escape for 6 months.

The incident happened in the Tangerang area of Jakarta, Indonesia.

The convict got tools from a building class inmates that were allowed to attend such classes. He would then wait until guards would change shifts.

The news was confirmed by Yusri Yunus, a Jakarta Police Spokesman.

Cai was sentenced in 2017 for trafficking 135 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine. He was facing the death penalty.

In addition to that, 70 kilograms of meth was found hidden in a chicken coop cleaner equipment, said the authorities.

Cai had previously broken out of a Jakarta Police Detention Center in 2017 by breaking a hole in the wall of the bathroom.

Cai managed to escape from a high-security prison on September 14, 2020.

The police are currently trying to find Cai and put him back in prison.
