  • HOBBS, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico corrections officers say an inmate escaped his jail cell by breaking a window bar with a razor blade and a Popsicle stick but changed his mind once he got outside.

    Carlos Garcia told police it took about five months to break the bar on his cell window at the Lea County jail with those materials. He also used plastic, newspaper and more Popsicle sticks to fashion a fake window.

    The Hobbs News-Sun reports that Garcia changed his mind and climbed back into his second-story cell using a bedsheet.

    Garcia has been moved to a maximum-security ward at the state penitentiary. He is serving time for two murder convictions and other crimes.

    A state Corrections Department spokeswoman says the Aug. 20 escape attempt is under investigation.
