A massive prison break in Mexico, has the U.S. on high-alert. Over 130 inmates are reportedly at large just south of the border.
Mexican officials say 132 inmates used a 4-foot wide, 21-foot long, tunnel to escape one-by-one from the prison “Piedras Negras” in the state of Coahuila yesterday.
Authorities have set up a massive search, as well as blockades to roads leading to the U.S.
The escape made up about a fifth of the entire prison population. Three prison officials, including the director, have been detained for questioning. There is also a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrests of each prisoner. Investigators say they have one inmate in custody.
