WASHINGTON- Six D.C. correctional officers have been put on leave as the U.S. Attorney's Office leads a criminal probe into the escape of two D.C. Jail inmates over the weekend, authorities said yesterday.

Inmates Joseph Leaks and Ricardo Jones were caught in separate locations in Maryland and Virginia Sunday after they broke into the warden's office and fled through a window Saturday.
