GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Perimeter alarms went off at the Mesa County jail Monday morning, but not for someone trying to break out.
Monique Armstrong actually wanted to get in.
Around 4:00 a.m. Armstrong climbed the chain-link fence and razor wire surrounding the detention center, demanding to be arrested.
Based on suspected crimes committed by Armstrong, she was arrested and jailed for criminal trespassing, criminal mischief, and violation of bail bond conditions.
Armstrong also identified herself as the sister of Michael Armstrong, 18, who was arrested by Grand Junction Police officers on the night of April 27 for his second DUI-D (driving under the influence of drugs) in two weeks. Michael posted bond and was released from jail at 8:50 a.m. on Monday.
