Beaufort County Jail reopens after months of repairs

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, N.C. -

The Beaufort County Detention Center reopened Friday afternoon, after three months of repairs.

A dryer sparked power outages back in June, forcing the jail to shutdown and officers to move all the inmates to other detention centers.

At the time the Jail reopened Friday, 102 Beaufort County inmates were housed at other jails in eastern North Carolina. The Beaufort County Detention Center has a maximum capacity of 85 beds. Some inmates will still have to be housed at other facilities.
