PRESIDIO - New details on a story NewsWest Nine first told you about last month.

Empty cells and a bolted door are at the center of discussion among Presidio County leaders.

A couple of weeks ago, the company that runs the jail announced they wanted out of their contract, and it has left the county in a huge bind.

According to the County Judge, just three days ago, the county had to close the jail down and send the inmates off to Brewster and Sierra Blanca.

The Commissioners Court has set another special meeting next week to figure out where to go from here.
