LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Crews worked through the rain Wednesday to put up more fencing and razor wire around the Lauderdale County Detention Center's exterior.

This comes following six escapes in the past year.

All of the inmates made it to the roof and jumped down to the ground to get away.
