ANDERSON, In. — It doesn’t take a sledgehammer to break through a prison wall; some inmates in Indiana did it with a broom.
They used the metal tip to carve a hole in a cement block at the Madison County jail.
They weren’t trying to break out; they just wanted to smuggle tobacco and cigarette lighters into their cell.
They lowered a rope through the hole and down the outside wall, where a former inmate waited with the supplies; but they got caught when a guard spotted the rope.
Now the supplier may soon find himself back in jail with his friends.
