ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) -- A Kentucky jail has increased security around its perimeter after four inmates escaped in the last six months by digging a hole and crawling out under the fence.
Hardin County Jailer Danny Allen put up more fences and poured concrete slabs about 18 inches wide and 10 inches deep under the existing fences.
Allen told The News-Enterprise that the added security measures will stop inmates from escaping the buildings. Allen said he's also considering taking away the privilege of allowing inmates to wear civilian clothes while at work sites.
2 of the escapes happened six months ago, while the other two happened last week. 3 of the four inmates have been caught.
