Six Inmates Escape Jail Through A Hole Behind A Toilet

Is this the next Hollywood film?

While many of us ate our Christmas dinners, six inmates decided to break out of a Tennessee jail.

According to the Cocke County Sheriff’s Office, six inmates from the Cocke County Jail Annex in Newport made the escape Christmas Day around 1:30 a.m.

Fortunately three have been apprehended, but the other three are still at large.

The sheriff’s office said, “The early-morning getaway was prompted by a water leak behind a toilet.”

“The bolts holding the unit rusted out and there was prior damage to the concrete due to plumbing repairs,” they added.

According to the sheriff, the inmates removed the toilet from the wall and “gained access to a hole, which led outside of the facility.”

The three inmates still at large are John Thomas Shehee, 28, Harce Wade Allen, 28, and David Wayne Frazier, 54. Frazier is considered to be dangerous, said the sheriff’s office.
