WOODBINE, Ga. — A Camden County inmate has been arrested trying to sneak back into jail.
Sheriff Tommy Gregory said Saturday that 25-year-old Harry Jackson of St. Marys had broken out of the jail, strolled to a nearby convenience store where he broke in and stole about 14 packs of cigarettes.
Gregory said authorities at first thought they had separate incidents — a jailbreak and a burglary. The jailbreak was discovered when a door that had been secure earlier was found unlocked.
The jail is supposed to be a smoke-free environment.The way smoking ban activists treat smokers these days, you'd think they would agree that prison is the one place smokers, and their habit, belong.
