Four prisoners escaped the detention center by exploiting a flaw in the building’s design. The last of the four prisoners was captured a month later.

According to the detention center’s Facebook page:

“It appears as though inmates escaped through a pipe chase, broke through into a mop closet into an unsecure area of the jail, and went out an emergency fire exit. This was apparently the result of a design flaw in the new side of our building, constructed in 2006,” the Facebook page post said.”
