  • ATLANTA (AP) — Jailers in Atlanta have a challenge for inmates: Get past the new locks being tested on cell doors and win free food.

    Officials have been trying to figure out what to do about hundreds of locks which can be jammed at the Fulton County Jail, allowing inmates to get to each other.

    Fulton County's chief jailer, Col. Mark Adger, tells WSB-TV (http://bit.ly/KNZQHT) he's offering free food for any inmate who can defeat the new locks being tested in one cell block.

    Adger says jailers are choosing experienced lock beaters, to try to beat the new locks.

    County Commissioner Tom Lowe has said the lock issue has been blown out of proportion, but others say it puts inmates at risk of being attacked by other prisoners.
