The Taylor County Detention Center is slowly, but surely, filling its cells.
As of last Monday, Taylor County Jailer Rick Benningfield said, the jail was housing 26 state inmates. As of Friday, that number had risen to nearly 100.
When you add Taylor County's own inmates to that figure, he said, the jail will soon be nearly full.
"We're filling them up," Benningfield said.
He said state inmates were transported to Taylor County from several counties last week, including Jefferson, Boyle, Christian, McCreary and Powell.
