Would-Be Jail Escapee Pleads Guilty

One of three people who tried to escape from the Warren County Jail on New Year’s Day has pleaded guilty.

Daniel Morehead, who turns 18 on Thursday, dug grout from around the concrete blocks of his cell using a coat hanger, and then replaced the grout with toothpaste. Authorities also found two pieces of metal with sharpened ends in his shoes.

Morehead was originally jailed on charges of burglary, theft, receiving stolen property and criminal trespass. He pleaded guilty to those charges as well.
