More than 80 Lubbock County inmates are moving to jails across the South Plains Saturday night. A water line busted underneath the Lubbock County Jail Saturday around 2 a.m. Sheriff Gutierrez described the damage like a river running through the first floor of the facility. Eighty-six minimum risk inmates are now being housed in Hale, Terry and Dickens County jails. Work crews say the water line bust happened in between the old and new sections of the jail.
