UNION SPRINGS, Ala. (AP) — A man who tried to break in to Bullock County Jail achieved his goal when police arrested him for criminal trespassing and locked him up, authorities said.
Officers found Jimmy Tolliver, 40, hiding behind an air conditioning unit in a secured area around 3 a.m. on Feb. 2, police told the Union Springs Herald.
"He had crawled under the fence," said Union Springs Police Chief Jake Wheeler. "We assume he was trying to smuggle something into the jail."
Wheeler said Tolliver told officers that he was trying to borrow $5 from an inmate.
Officers searched the area and found a bag of marijuana stuffed in a ventilation duct, the police report stated.
Tolliver was charged with second-degree criminal trespassing and taken to a city holding area. He was later transported to the same county jail to which he had tried to gain entry.
Bullock County District Judge Mike Emfinger charged Tolliver with time served and released him, warning him to "stay away from the jail."Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........
Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
