Juvie Jailbreak: 32 Teens Manage To Escape From Nashville Detention Center

Late Monday night, 32 teens ranging in age from 14 to 19 years old successfully managed a major prison break.

According to Rob Johnson, a spokesman for the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services, the crafty adolescents, most of whom have at least three felonies on their criminal records, escaped through a weak spot in a fence that surrounds the yard at Woodland Hills Youth Development Center in Nashville, TN.

“At about 11 o’clock last night, about 32 youth – we believe – got out of their dorms and managed to slip underneath the perimeter fence,” Johnson said. “Staffing is lighter during the overnight hours, and so, presumably, they planned for that, but we don’t know quite yet. The facility, as I understand, is under control. They’ve brought in extra staff.”

Interestingly, this is the second major security breach at Woodland Hills Youth Development Center in recent months. In May 6 teens escaped from their dorm rooms, but didn’t manage to make it off the property.

Last year, an investigative news team released footage of guards at the facility sleeping on the job. 

It sounds like they need a little bit more than extra staff.

Two of the teens were captured immediately. A dozen more were located with the help of police K-9 dogs and helicopters.

As of this morning, WSMV reports that 10 of the escaped teens are still at large.

They shouldn’t be hard to spot running around Nashville in their prison duds, described as  gray or white T-shirts, dark blue pants and white or black sneakers.
