Six inmates escaped from a Tennessee jail through a broken toilet early Christmas morning, the Cocke County Sheriff’s Office told KOMO News.
The police are still searching for one of the inmates. The other five were captured shortly after they escaped.
According to police, the toilet the inmates escaped through had rusted bolts and damaged concrete caused by a water leak, which allowed them to remove it and escape through the hole it left in the wall.
The escaped inmates were Steven Lewis, John Speir, John Shehee, Harce Allen, Eric Click, and David Wayne Frazier.
The inmate who hasn’t been captured, Frazier, is thought to be the most dangerous of the group, according to WATE 6. Frazier, 54, had been charged with aggravated robbery and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
