Three escape from Franklin County Juvenile Detention Center

Three juveniles escaped from the Franklin County Juvenile Detention Center on Wednesday, according to WSIL News.

Calls to the detention center at 4 p.m. were after office hours. Messages for comment were not immediately returned to the News-Democrat.

County-level juvenile detention centers, such as the Franklin County one in Benton, are not operated by the Department of Juvenile Justice, nor by the local sheriff's department.
