For today’s #tbt we go back to February, 1957. Undersheriff Robert Steels, (L) and Sheriff Frank Lyden investigate an attempted escape from the Putnam County Jail. On February 1, 1957, an inmate being released from the jail, gave Sheriff Frank Lyden a tip that some prisoners were planning an escape. An additional tip was developed that these prisoners were now in possession of hacksaw blades. Sheriff Lyden initiated an investigation and inspection of the jail and located a 1” hexagon bar that had been sawed through. As the investigation and interviews continued with the prisoners by Sheriff Lyden, Undersheriff Steele and ADA Frank Bowers, it was determined that a 14 year old Carmel youth provided the prisoners with the blades, by handing them through the window in the alleyway. That youth who at 14 was already on probation, was identified and charged. The two prisoners were also charged with attempted escape as well as a third individual. Coincidentally, this same method of escape from the Putnam County Jail was used successfully two years prior. In that case, two prisoners did in fact escape, but were later recaptured following a crime spree. #pcso #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #throwbackthursday #tonighttheresgonnabeajailbreak
