Hamilton — Police in southwest Ohio are perplexed about why a woman tried to sneak into a county jail before telling authorities to arrest her.

Deputies with the Butler County Sheriff's Office arrested 36-year-old Tiffany R Hurd on Sunday morning after she was caught trying to climb over a fence into Butler County Jail in Hamilton, near Cincinnati.

It happened after jail staff leaving a late-night shift told Hurd to leave the property, but she told them to arrest her.

"She was repeatedly told to stop," Sergeant Monte Mayer said. "They couldn't talk her out of it."

Deputies asked Hurd to leave numerous times, but she refused and attempted to climb the fence again. That's when police took action.

"She got her wish," Mayer said. "It wasn't in a traditional manner."

A first

Deputies say Hurd appeared to be intoxicated. In a statement about the incident, Sheriff Richard Jones said Hurd's actions caught him by surprise.

"I know the economy is bad right now, but I didn't think it was so bad that someone would actually try to break IN to jail," he said.

Mayer said his colleagues had never heard of such a situation.

"To the best of our knowledge, we have never heard of someone trying to break into a secure area of the jail compound, hoping to get into jail," he said. "That's a first."

Hurd was arrested on misdemeanour charges of criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct. Bond was set at $2 500 during an arraignment on Monday.

Hurd remains at the county jail. She has another court appearance scheduled for 9 August. An attorney listed for Hurd did not immediately return a message on Monday seeking comment.
