Talisha Gwen McCann, a 42-year-old from Alabama, was arrested after she was caught trying to break into jail. She is now imprisoned in the same jail she is accused of trying to illegally break into. This certainly flips the script on a traditional jail-break.
According to multiple news reports, McCan was caught on surveillance cameras using bolt cutters on a prison-yard fence.
She ran off when prison guards approached her, however deputies later caught her. She was found with two gallon-sized storage bags of tobacco, pain meds and a cellphone.
It is believed that she was smuggling contraband goods inside to inmates.
According to authorities, McCann had only just be released from that same prison two-weeks prior to the incident. Because of this, she was familiar with the layout of the prison and recreation yard area.
She has been charged with second-degree criminal trespass, possession of burglary tools, third-degree criminal mischief, first-degree promoting prison contraband and possession of a control substance, AL.com reported.
