Dauphin Co. Prison lockdown will end Tuesday morning

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A week-long lockdown at Dauphin County Prison will be lifted on Tuesday at 6 a.m. Normal visitation hours will resume at that time.

The prison has been locked down since last Tuesday, March 5. At that time correctional staff discovered that 25-year-old Andthony Ray Spears had used a handmade tool to dig a hole in his jail cell wall.

He faces several charges related to the escape attempt.

Damages to the cell are estimated at $5,000.

During the lockdown, inmates had to remain in their cells, and visitation was restricted while prison staff conducted a thorough sweep of the premises.
