Woman caught trying to break into jail, officials say

Talisha McCann arrested in Alabama

FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ala. - It's not uncommon to hear about prisoners trying to break out of jail, but an Alabama woman was arrested after investigators say she tried to break in.

Surveillance video shows Talisha McCann using bolt cutters to try and cut her way into the prison yard, according to authorities.

Prison guards were able to scare her off, and when deputies caught up to her, they said they found two gallon-sized bags of tobacco, a small amount of pain medication and a cellphone.

Investigators said McCann planned on sneaking the items inside the jail.

Deputies said McCann had been released from the jail two weeks earlier.
