Sarpy County deputies are releasing more information about a disturbance inside the county jail Friday night.
Deputies say a fire alarm in a medium security housing unit went off around 6 p.m.. When they arrived they found the fire sprinklers were on flooding the unit, and that the 17 inmates had barricaded the main entry door and tied off other doors with blankets that were crafted into ropes. The inmates also tried to cover windows and surveillance cameras with soap, toothpaste, and paper products. Four inmates were found to be the instigators: Brandon McKinley, Valdemar Grimaldo, Jr., Angok Wal, and Joshua Salazar. They have been charged with felony terroristic threats, felony criminal mischief, obstructing government operations, and obstructing a peace officer. A judge set bond for McKinley, Grimaldo, Jr., and Salazar at $1 million, while Wal's bond was set at $500,000.
Deputies say the involved inmates broke eleven sprinkler heads which caused significant flooding damage to the main floor of the jail as well as the public defender's office.
