There’s a new jail in Benton County.

According to Sheriff Eric Knox, the new facility on East Main Street in Warsaw has been in the works for a few years and is finally open for business.

Knox says in addition to the added space, deputies now have their own personal lockers and a shower facility.

Funds from a sales tax increase approved by voters were used to build the facility, which can now house up to 100 detainees at a time.

The previous facility required deputies to house inmates at other locations due to lack of space.
