So two enterprising prisoners decide to sneak out of jail, rob a dollar store, then sneak back in...so they could sell the stolen items inside the jail. 

This is one for the record books.

LEXINGTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - A bizarre crime happened in Holmes County Tuesday when four inmates reportedly broke out of the Holmes-Humphreys County Correctional Facility, burglarizing a business, then sneaking back in to jail.

The inmates, Levontaye Ellington, Travis Baker, Maurice Robertson and Jacquiez Williams escaped their cell, jumped the fence of the jail and walked less than a mile to a Dollar General. Police say surveillance video from that night shows they broke in after hours to steal any and everything they could get their hands on.

“They stole cigarettes, cigarette lighters, phones and just items they felt they could sell in jail,” said Lexington Police Chief Robert Kirklin.

After grabbing the items in the store, the chief says instead of making a run for it, the men snuck back into jail unnoticed. Williams even bonded out for another charge before authorities figured out what happened.

“You already in jail, but you want to break out and break back in?" said the Chief. "That is just something. I heard it all."

Got out pulled off successful crime and got back in unnoticed. I think maybe the prison staff are the dumber ones here.
