ETOWAH COUNTY, Ala (WIAT) - The Etowah County Sheriff's Office is cracking down on inmates after at the county jail after a hole is discovered in a jail cell window. Officials believe an e-cigarette was used to burn a hole through the thick security grade glass.

Sheriff Jonathon Horton says late Friday night new security cameras captured a vehicle pull up to the 9th Street side of the detention center. The person drove off before deputies could apprehend them. They noticed a package tied to a rope made of garbage bags. The make shift rope was hanging from the window with the hole. Horton says the package contained contraband including marijuana, meth, and smoking tobacco. The package never made it inside the jail.

The Sheriff's Office conducted a surprise shakedown the next day and discovered the tampered e-cigarettes, baby oil, and metal saw blades in the cell. Horton believes the inmate used the battery and wires from the e-cigarette to start a spark to heat the baby oil in order to melt the glass. The saw blade was used to cut through the security bars outside of the window.
