CONNERSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Eastern Indiana police are searching for two inmates who escaped from a county jail by squeezing through a hole they apparently made in the jail’s exterior wall.

Inmates Chadwick R. Heath and Michael D. Roberts were found missing from the Fayette County Jail during Friday night’s head count at the jail in Connersville.

Staff at the jail about 50 miles east of Indianapolis found a two-foot-wide hole in both the interior and exterior walls in the men’s jail cell. A review of surveillance video showed the men escaping through that hole.

The (Richmond) Palladium-Item reports (https://pinews.co/1Xwcdf0 ) that county police are urging anyone who sees the men to use caution and immediately call 911 to alert police.
