Man attempts suicide at Callaway County Jail

A man was released into medical custody at about 3 p.m. Friday after apparently attempting suicide at the Callaway County Jail.

Sheriff Dennis Crane confirmed a man left the jail to be transported by ambulance to the hospital who was breathing on his own and still had a pulse.

Crane said he could not comment further on his medical condition or confirm the name because the individual’s family had not been contacted. Crane confirmed the suspect was in jail on charges related to controlled substances and fraudulent use of a credit device.
