Breaking Back Into Jail

Posted in dumb criminals by weirdoftheday on March 7, 2009

A Georgia inmate escaped through an open door in the jail exercise yard before climbing over the wall and to his freedom. He was later caught trying to sneak back in with 14 packs of cigarettes in his arms. During the time that the inmate went missing, cops responded to a tripped alarm at a convenience store no more than a block away from the prison.

Apparently the inmate had broken out of jail to rob said convenience store, stealing only 14 cigarette packs and hauling them back with him.

The inmate had gone out by the fence in the exercise yard to pick up a package of cigarettes (which were banned in the jail) that was supposed to have been dropped off by an unknown source. However, he found that there were no cigarettes that day. The other inmates told him not to return without their cigarettes, so he had to think fast if he wanted to make everyone happy.

Apparently an idea lightbulb went off in his head and he decided that his only option was to bust out and get the cigarettes himself. In the end, though, he got himself caught and nobody got their cigarettes.

The interesting thing about this is that the guy didn’t just run away and never come back. Most people would. That’s the whole point of breaking out of jail, isn’t it?
