Nash County Detention Center, Nashville, North Carolina
March 25, 2019
Five inmates identified a camera blind spot and escaped through a hole in the fence on Monday night.
The local sheriff and the FBI began a search for the five men and four were recaptured by Tuesday morning. Two of the men were found at a motel 15 miles from the prison. One inmate remains at large.
Nash County Sheriff Keith Stone said that he believes the prisoners had an outside accomplice.
Just got a tour from @NashCountySO showing us where these five inmates broke free from today. Officials say they kicked this fence in which had been worn away and hopped over two more doors to get out the back. This fencing had just been fixed. #ABC11 pic.twitter.com/5tG4qugCXO
