GRAHAM, N.C. — Alamance County has closed part of its jail because of a decline in inmates.
The Times-News of Burlington reported (http://bit.ly/1ONGFrT) that the sheriff’s office decided to temporarily close an annex that had housed 30 female inmates.
A declining jail population prompted officials to move the women inmates back to the main jail in Graham.
Sheriff Terry Johnson says the county has up to 520 inmates a day under normal circumstances. Johnson says the jail has topped out around 340 inmates for the past couple of months.
