One of the inmates who was the first to escape Canberra's prison has admitted burning an expensive Jaguar during a two-day crime spree.
Patrick McCurley, 30, was arraigned in the ACT Supreme Court on Monday on 13 offences committed on March 23 and 24.
He pleaded guilty to driving a stolen Volkswagen Polo and Jaguar F-Type and torching the two cars, the latter worth upwards of $100,000.
He admitted breaking into a newsagent, a cafe and the post office in Lyneham, a flooring store and auction house in Fyshwick.
McCurley also broke into a car wash in Mitchell, stole a computer, as well as a Makita hard case from the flooring store.
He will be sentenced at a later date.
McCurley was on remand on aggravated robbery charges when he and Jacob McDonald climbed out a window from their block at the Hume prison and used a ladder-like cable tray to scale three fences.
Authorities later spotted the ladder leaning against the fence.
Theirs was the first successful escape from the jail since it opened in 2009.
McCurley was arrested when police stopped his car after a chase at Majura nearly 48 hours later.
McDonald was later recaptured in Narrabundah.
McCurley was listed for sentence on February 6.
