TROY, Ala. (AP) – An Alabama man is charged with breaking into a county jail to make a delivery of cigarettes, marijuana, cellphones and chargers.

Pike County Sheriff Russell Thomas said workers using a security monitoring system saw a man coming through the fence surrounding the jail about 2 a.m. Monday.

Jadakis McKinney, 19, of Enterprise was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing, promoting prison contraband and marijuana possession.

Thomas said officials hope to reduce the amount of illegal items being brought into the lockup, which will be replaced with a new jail set to open in late 2023.
