There is a nationwide alert out Monday night for two men who escaped from the High Point jail, including a convicted sex offender.
The Guilford County sheriff said Jose Sid and Jose Hernandez used pieces of metal from the air vent in their cell to break the window. He said they put objects in their beds to make it look like they were sleeping and then climbed out the window and down the ledge.
"These guys are there 24/7. They have nothing to do but try to figure out how to get out," said Sheriff BJ Barnes.
Barnes also said he is changing security procedures at the jail.
