Attempted Escape Leads to Montgomery Jail Improvements

Clarksville, TN – Police will review their security procedures after two inmates escaped from the Montgomery County Jail on May 15. Chief Deputy Ed Patterson says Robert Anthony Fusco and his cell-mate Devon Wall broke out of the facility using a hacksaw that Fusco snuck through security. Officers soon caught both inmates, and are now looking for ways to improve the jail. Patterson says staff shortages as well as structural concerns such as poorly designed windows facilitated the escape. Officials also plan to review search techniques with the jail staff as this is not the first time inmates have broken free.
