A statement by the sheriff said that prior plumbing repairs had loosened the concrete holding the toilet and leaking water had rusted the bolts holding it.

The whereabouts of the other four men are unknown and Cocke County Sheriff's Office is appealing for information to help find them.

Police in Tennessee are on the hunt for four inmates who managed to escape the county jail on Christmas morning after removing a toilet and sneaking out through the whole behind it. Only one inmate remained on the run as of 8:30 p.m. Monday - David Frazier, 54.

The fifth man, named John Shehee, chose to turn himself in to the police.

Photos have been posted to a public Facebook page showing the school group at the scene of the crash and in Hawke's Bay Hospital. The bus carrying a visiting Tongan school brass band crashed down a bank at 9.30pm on SH2 between Wairoa and Gisborne.

According to Sheriff Armando Fontes of Cocke County, Tenn. Upon Speir's arrest, Daniel Speir and Jarred Schoondermark were charged with harboring a fugitive in Cosby, Tennessee, according to reports.

Inmate Steven Lewis was also captured after a foot chase by officers in the Carson Springs Community. "Apparently the bolts holding the unit rusted out and there was prior damage to the concrete due to plumbing repairs", the sheriff told local reporters. He was behind bars for aggravated robbery and having a weapon as a convicted felon.

Authorities are continuing to investigate because an inmate still in the cell propped the toilet structure back up to make it look like nothing happened. "It's a never ending task to keep this facility and this place operational", Fontes said.

Shehee was facing charges for arson and criminal trespassing as well property theft. Harce Allen and Eric Click were caught on Monday.
