Hiding inmates give up when dog brought to jail

Inmates threatened to try to escape

The Associated Press via Knoxnews.com

BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. — The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office says two jail inmates tried to escape. Officials say the men changed their minds when jailers said a dog was going to be let loose to find them.

The Kingsport Times-News reported a sheriff's spokesman identified the inmates as Daniel Ray Spitzer, 18, and Nathan G. Morelock, 22.

The department said the two removed ceiling tile in their cell Sunday night and got into the ceiling. Jailers were alerted by an alarm that detects the tiles being moved. Jailers did a head count and determined Spitzer and Morelock were missing. Officers who climbed into the ceiling could not see them.
