North Georgia inmates escape after removing toilet

DAHLONEGA, Ga. (AP) — Authorities are looking for a north Georgia jail inmate who they say escaped by removing a toilet from a cell wall.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/NaMY0k ) reports two men broke out of the Lumpkin County Detention Center late Tuesday.

One inmate turned himself in after he was injured trying to scale the center's razor and barbed wire fences. The second inmate remains on the loose.

Officials say the missing inmate should be considered dangerous. He was in jail on felony drug, weapons and other charges.
