IBERVILLE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Iberville Parish Sheriff Brett Stassi says that inmates at the Iberville Parish Prison will have to be moved to another state facility over night.
Stassi was not able to give the exact time of the move citing security reasons.
Male and female inmates will be sent to different facilities.
According to Stassi, more than 100 inmates will be moved so that staff workers can work to clean out asbestos as well as upgrade the heating and cooling systems at the prison.
Stassi estimates that the inmates will be back at the prison in 4 or 5 days once crews determine that the prison is safe.
