Rains flood county jail

Weekend storms created a stink at the Curry County Detention Center.

Administrator Lois Bean said the problems began Friday night and got worse as rains poured and the city’s main sewer line began flooding in the annex of the center.

Bean said the inmates simply kept out of the way of the detention center’s maintenance staff and city workers as they worked to resolve the issue.

Bean said the cleanup and problem were fixed Monday.
