Four Insanely Dumb Thugs Break Out Of Prison, Commit Unthinkable Crime… Then Break BACK Into The Same Cell
Most inmates no doubt would rather break out of jail and be gone, however, if you’re Levontaye Ellington, Travis Baker, Maurice Robertson and Jacquiez Williams, breaking out of jail and visiting your friendly neighborhood general store for a few goodies and then back again undetected, probably ranks as perhaps one of the most bizarre incidents ever.
Moreover braking out of the Holmes-Humphrey’s County Correctional Facility, in Mississippi is one thing, however actually breaking back in undetected, begs two basic questions, “why” and “how”?
Lexington Police Chief Robert Kirklin told Mississippi News Now that the four inmates stole cigarettes, cigarette lighters, phones and just items they felt they could sell in jail,’ which explains the “why.”
The foursome was caught on surveillance cameras grabbing goods inside, a Dollar General Chain store about a mile from the jail.
However rather than taking off after robbing the Dollar General store, the inmates decided to sneak back into the jail.
‘You’re already in jail, but you want to break out and break back in?’ the chief said. ‘That is just something. I heard it all.’
However here’s where it gets even stranger if that possible, the inmates deny they escaped and robbed the Dollar General Store despite the fact they were caught on surveillance footage…perhaps America’s funniest video’s should pay a visit to the Holmes-Humphrey’s County Correctional Facility.
Obviously, the police are able through the surveillance footage to connect the inmates to the crime.
Holmes County Sheriff Willie March confirmed the embarrassing escape and said his team of officers needed to do a better job in securing the facility and vowed that this doesn’t happen again.
However, it’s not clear “how” the inmates were able to simply walk out of the facility, without someone seeing them. It’s also not clear what the four inmates will be charged with.
Chief Robert Kirklin indicated that commercial burglary in all likelihood would be the charge; it’s also not clear what each of the inmates is currently serving time for.
Do you think that the chief of police and other officials at the jail should either be reprimanded or resign?
