Half a dozen inmates were on the loose Tuesday after 14 escaped from a county jail in Washington state the night before, officials said.
“ALERT! Several prisoners have escaped from the Yakima County Jail in Downtown Yakima,” said a Facebook post from the city of Yakima on Monday night. The post added that residents in certain areas of the city should remain indoors and call police if they see any suspicious activity.
The inmates were able to escape by breaking open an exterior fire door using a table from inside an annex, authorities shared.
