SPOKANE, Wash. - Two Spokane County Jail inmates face first-degree escape charges after deputies found evidence they were plotting an escape. 

Deputies say the two inmates, Jeremiah Logan and Jason Cooper, used a tool fashioned out of toenail clippers, a strip of cloth and a towel rack was found in the inmate's cell apparently used for making a hole. Court documents said corrections staff found a hole between 4 inches and 8 inches in length and 2 to 4 inches in height in the cell camouflaged by toilet paper, toothpaste and cardboard. 

Logan is in jail for child rape charges, and Cooper is in jail for possession of meth. Both were in court on Monday to face the new charges of escape.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - One of the great parts about living in Spokane, is if you head out of town in any direction, you're going to run into some beautiful farm land. I grew up south of Spokane, near Plaza, and one of my favorite things to do was to sit on the porch at night and stare south towards Rosalia at all of the rolling hills of wheat, lentils, barley and peas. More >>
