Negasi Zuberi Wiki – Negasi Zuberi Biography
Negasi Zuberi, 29, was caught trying to break the window glass of his cell at the Jackson County Jail Tuesday afternoon, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. A county maintenance worker reported hearing suspicious sounds coming from Zuberi’s cell around 12:45 p.m. When officers went to investigate, they found the inmate standing on his bunk next to the broken window. “Deputies took Zuberi into custody, subjected him to a full body scan and moved him to a hard cell with no exterior windows,” the sheriff’s office said. “While further searching the cell, officers found a makeshift tool that was suspected to have been used to damage the window.” The exterior windows of the jail are made of reinforced glass and Zuberi only caused damage to the inner shell, police said. In addition, he was charged with attempted escape and disorderly conduct. Zuberi’s lawyers declined to comment on the incident.
