SEARCY, AR - Romantic thoughts were apparently not on the minds of at least some inmates at the White County jail on Valentine's Day.
According to a report from the White County Sheriff's Department, an internal investigation shows that at least two inmates on Saturday night began to damage a surveillance camera inside the jail pod, eventually forcibly removing the device and destroying it. Inmates also ripped a sink and shower unit out of a wall, causing an estimated $5,000 in damage. When the sink and shower were ripped from the wall, jailers were forced to shut off the facility's main water valve in order to avoid potential flooding.
