Bold jailbreak

Authorities are continuing the manhunt for three inmates who made a dramatic escape from the Orange County Central Men’s Jail. The men cut through metal bars and used bedsheets to rappel down the sides of the building. “I can tell you that this is a very sophisticated-looking operation. People in jail have a lot of time to sit around and think about ways to defeat our systems,” said Sheriff Sandra Hutchens. The men are violent and believed to be armed, she said.
