Police Chief John Erisman said an officer’s failure to follow proper procedure made it possible for a suspect to walk out of the Ennis municipal jail on Nov. 3.
David Benson, 35 of Ennis, was arrested Nov. 2. pending charges of burglary. The next day, he managed to walk out the front door of the Ennis Police Department and get two blocks away before Officers Jacob Yrlas and Roger Cole were able to catch him.
