Ala. sheriff says inmate hid hacksaw in Bible

Houston County Sheriff Andy Hughes said an inmate's bid to escape the
county jail on Saturday was foiled by a correctional officer. Hughes said a
19-year-old man used a hidden hacksaw to cut through a cell bar, but an
observant correctional officer saw the damage and searched the inmate's
cell.

Hughes said deputies found the hacksaw in the back cover of a Bible.

The man, who was awaiting trial for two armed robberies, now faces an
escape charge.

Investigators are trying to learn who smuggled the hacksaw into the jail.
