An investigation has been launched after evidence was discovered Thursday indicating that someone tried to illegally gain entry into the Houston County Jail. The initial theory is that it was a failed attempt to free an inmate from the jail.
A hole appears to have been cut in the security fence that surrounds the jail and tools found at the scene. It’s not believed entry was gained to the lockup.
Dozens of law officers converged on the scene using tracking dogs trying to find those responsible.
More information will be released early Thursday afternoon when a press conference is scheduled.
