An incident report on the prison escape engineered by seven inmates last December has been released by the Texas Department of Corrections. In the report, corrections officials point to several security breaches that facilitated the escape. The report notes that a security officer allowed an unidentified person to enter a weapons storage facility and a maintenance truck to be moved into a secure area, both in violation of prison rules. The report also says that, when guards who had been taken hostage were able to activate a fire alarm, the alarm was silenced and ignored by the security officer on duty.
