Two Curry County Employees placed on administrative after Inmate Released

Two Curry County jail employees are on paid administrative leave as officials investigate their involvement with the mistaken release of an inmate.

Thirty-three-year-old John "Toy Toy" Garcia was let go by mistake on Monday after a clerical error said he was supposed to be released.

Garcia turned himself in to his parole officer Tuesday morning.

There is no word on how long the investigation will last.
