Jail cells overflow, no relief in sight

The Lancaster County Detention Center is bursting at the seams, setting a record this week with more than 200 inmates jamming the 121-bed facility on Thursday.
Sheriff Barry Faile attributes the rise in the prisoner population to a big increase in the number of arrests this year – up 9 percent in the first two quarters. Violent crime has risen 82 percent.
“It’s sad that we’ve got that many inmates out there, but it’s good we have them there instead of on the streets,” Faile said this week.
