CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say an inmate tried to escape from the jail facility in Rogers County through a hole in the facility’s shower area that was also used to sneak in contraband.

The Claremore Daily Progress (http://bit.ly/1lf1xRZ ) reports that it appeared that the hole was created over the course of two days. The inmate was arrested Tuesday and faces several charges, including attempting to escape from jail and conspiracy.

A 32-year-old woman is accused of smuggling contraband to the inmate from an outside wall and through small ductwork. She faces several charges, including conspiracy and carrying weapon/drugs/alcohol into the jail.

Authorities say the inmate would exit through the shower area by climbing inside a pipe casing and go down to a lower level to receive the contraband.

Rogers County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Bob Darby said the hole in the shower area has been repaired.
