HOBBS, N.M. -- New Mexico corrections officers say an inmate escaped his jail cell by breaking a window bar with a razor blade and a Popsicle stick but changed his mind once he got outside. Carlos Garcia told police it took about five months to break the bar on his cell window at the Lea County jail with those materials. He also used plastic, newspaper and more Popsicle sticks to fashion a fake window. The Hobbs News-Sun reports that Garcia changed his mind and climbed back into his second-story cell using a bedsheet.Garcia has been moved to a maximum-security ward at the state penitentiary.
Kind of weird how they threw this guy in maximum security and took away all his rights and perks and shit. Like out of every inmate in your prison I’m pretty sure this is the one guy you DON’T have to worry about trying to escape or hurt someone. Bro was literally outside free and clear and chose to climb back up because he wanted to chill some more. Probably should up his outdoors time and get him some cigarettes and porn and shit as a thank you for exposing your security flaws? Not that they’re that major or anything. Just the fact your prison bars can be sawed through with popsicle sticks. Oh and your security guards can’t tell a window made out of popsicle sticks and newspapers is not in fact a real window. Other than that you guys are on top of your shit. A prison where you can break out with a Firecracker Pop and a New York Times is definitely where I want all my murderers and rapists stored.
