6 inmates escape from California county jail using homemade rope to scale down jail walls

(The AEGIS Alliance) – Six inmates have escaped from Merced County Downtown Jail in California, officials from the Merced County Sheriff’s Office announced on Sunday afternoon.

Jail employees found the inmates were nowhere to be found at about midnight. A preliminary investigation discovered that they gained access to the roof of the county jail and used a makeshift rope to scale down the outside walls of the jail.

The sheriff’s department will provide an update when more details become available.
