Three Of Four Jail Escapees Back Behind Bars

Three of the four escapees from the Harrison County jail are now back behind bars.  The break-out occurred about 2am this morning.  Two inmates were caught a short time later near the Biloxi Wal-Mart after stealing a truck and driving to the store.  A third inmate was captured late this morning in the woods near the jail.  The search continues for the fourth inmate and several police agencies are participating in the effort.  A perimeter has been set up around the jail.  Sheriff Melvin Brisolera says the inmates escaped by prying a metal door loose, and them using it as a battering ram to break through a wall, and then climb the fence.  The at-large inmate is considered dangerous according to the sheriff.  WLOX News crews has been covering the story all day, and will have more tonight on WLOX News at 5:30pm.
