The strike happened nearly a week ago and lasted about a day and a half.

But the Warden at the Detention Center has released details about what happened.

Kevin Moore says the inmates stopped eating the food the jail provides to send a message.

Exactly why the inmates were protesting has not been released.

A little over 3-hundred inmates participated in the strike.

They refused to eat the meals provided for them.

Instead they ate food bought at the Jail Commissary.

NewsWest Nine spoke with the Warden, and he says they are slowly giving inmates their privleges back.

If the good behavior continues, the Warden says the jail will release their lockdown status.
