If the idea was to escape from jail, then you're doing it wrong....
CLIFTON, Tenn. -- The state Department of Correction said two inmates escaped a minimum security prison in southwest middle Tennessee on Nov. 7 to steal cigarettes before returning, WSMV-TV in Nashville reported.
Adam Garland and Michael Queener are accused of escaping through a window in their cell at the Turney Center Annex and crawling under a fence.
While out, the men stole cigarettes and tobacco products from a convenience store before returning to the prison by going back through the window that they had escaped from, officials at the corrections department said.
If having years potentially added to your relatively short sentences in a minimum-security jail is worth a pack of smokes, perhaps you should take up a different hobby than cigarettes.
