Three Starr County Sheriff’s Office employees have been fired following what officials called a potential security breach at the county jail. In a Facebook post, the Sheriff’s Office says jail administrators responded to facility damage possibly caused by jail inmates on October 29th.
The post says an investigation led to the termination of a high-ranking official and two lower ranking supervisors for failing to perform routine inspections. Sheriff’s officials did not specify the breach nor identify the employees who were fired. The ongoing investigation involves the Starr County Sheriff’s Office, the district attorney’s office, and the U.S. Marshals Service.
