Another teen from juvenile jail breakout is found

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Police say they've captured one of the six teens that were still on the run after a mass breakout from a troubled Nashville detention center.

Metro Nashville Police say that the teen was found at an apartment complex in nearby Hermitage on Friday and that five others who were being held at Woodland Hills Youth Development Center remain at large.

More than 30 teenagers escaped from the facility late Monday.

Staff initially thought the teens were contained in the yard but called police after they realized that offenders were escaping under a weak spot in the fence.

Most teenagers at the center have committed at least three felonies. On Wednesday, two dozen detainees broke into the yard, wielding sticks and spraying a fire extinguisher. The center has a history of violent clashes, breakout attempts and attacks on guards.
