OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office says that dozens of inmates have been moved out of three pods at the county jail due to a month-long bedbug infestation.

Sheriff’s department spokesman Mark Opgrande said that the infestation was first noticed about a month ago, and a local business that contracts with the jail tried to eradicate the bedbugs but was unsuccessful.

Opgrande said that two of the pods were heavily populated at the time, housing about 50 inmates each.

The Oklahoman (https://bit.ly/1QdgivP ) reports that a Dallas-based business that specializes in bedbug extermination was called in Friday to give the jail a quote. Opgrande said that other pest control businesses will also give the jail quotes in the coming days.
