DANNEMORA, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities in New York are investigating how two murderers obtained power tools they used to break out of a prison.

Authorities say the escapees must have taken days to cut through steel walls and pipes and break through the bricks at the 150-year-old Clinton Correctional Facility.

Prison officials found the inmates' beds stuffed with clothes on Saturday morning in an apparent attempt to fool guards making their rounds.

A $100,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the capture of 34-year-old David Sweat and 48-year-old Richard Matt.
