New Detention Center Administrator Named

The new Detention Center administrator for Curry County will have her hands full. Lois Patricia Jones-Bean has been named the new head of the jail, and will take the position over on December 15th.

Officials say she has more than 20 years experience, and will fit right in.

In August seven dangerous inmates escaped the facility when they dug a hole in the roof and climbed out.

Two remain on the loose at this time.
