Cellmates at the Elkhart County Jail are facing preliminary charges of trying to escape.
Police say Chase Jones and Joshua Parker, both 28-year-old, chiseled a hole in their cell wall.
Probable cause documents for Parker indicate jail guards heard a sound coming from their cell Monday morning. Inside the cell, guards found a 12 inch by 12 inch, 4 inch deep hole in the cell wall, carved out using wire and a metal ring.
Both men remain in the same jail they tried to escape from.
