    Atlanta Penitentiary

    Inmates Have Been Sneaking In and Out of Atlanta Prison for Years | whotv.com

    ATLANTA – Inmates trying to break out of prison is nothing new. But inmates breaking out, then breaking right back in? It’s apparently been happening for years at a federal facility in Atlanta.

    Back in January 2013, the Atlanta Police Department started investigating inmates “temporarily escaping” from the medium-security US Penitentiary in the city, according to court documents filed in what appears to be the latest unapproved furlough. Cops believe the inmates escaped through holes cut in the prison fence.

    Officers first noticed a car parked near the prison fence line. The people inside wore ski masks and jumpsuits. When cops approached, the suspects climbed the fence and ran back onto prison grounds, court records show.

    Inside the car, cops found bottled alcohol, 24 cell phones and two loaded handguns, documents show.

    Since then, APD has frequently checked the area. Late last year, officers discovered two man-sized holes in the fence, court records state. Nearby were a prison-issued laundry bag, prison-issued gloves, an MP3 player and several trash bags.

    A month later, surveillance cameras were installed along the prison fence, and over the next three weeks, cops watched as inmates escaped to retrieve large bags of contraband, documents show.

    Then on February 3, one inmate’s luck ran out.

    Justin B. Stinson allegedly escaped though the fence and grabbed a large black duffel back filled with contraband. As he was trying to sneak back into the penitentiary, FBI agents arrested him, according to court documents.

    The FBI found Stinson with a cell phone, a pair of scissors, two 1.75-liter bottles of Jose Cuervo tequila, two cartons of Newport cigarettes, four boxes of Black & Mild Cigars and some food.

    The US attorney’s office in Atlanta, the FBI and the Bureau of Prisons declined to comment, citing the ongoing investigation.

    That's been going on since I was a rookie, and I'm retired!

    KBCraig remember when the inmate who had the brothel and rented a mobile home adjacent to the satellite camp? He was only caught because he was bragging to the other inmates about how much nookie he was getting. Inmate told the camp administrator and bam, emergency count. Another instance was the beer the inmates smuggled in at the camp. twenty-four bottles of Corona. They were caught because of being obnoxious drunk. Those guys were kept in the annex and cried like babies after they sobered up. No phones and their property was delivered to SHU and no one would go get the property.

    At an institution that has a satellite camp but will remain nameless...

    During E/W we got a call from a local store less than a mile away. The clerk sold a bunch of stuff to someone who she thought was dressed in inmate type clothes. Did an emergency count at the camp and one is missing.

    While they were doing the count the Ops Lt. discretely deployed staff in the woods between the camp and the local store. A few minutes later a camper walks out of the woods carrying two large paper sacks (this tells you it was a few years ago) and the staff charge out of the woods.

    He drops the bags and freezes. A staff member asks him 'What's in the bags?' The inmate reply is priceless...'What bags?'

    The county jail I worked in 40 yrs ago had a smokestack that was not in use.

    Trustees in the basement cells figured out how to get into the smokestack , climb out of the jail and back in

    For months they were going out for drinks and burgers late at night............by the time I started in 1978 the smokestack was demolished :)
