A surprise health inspection at the Oklahoma County Detention Center (OCDC) finds countless violations putting inmates and staff in danger.

Short staffing meant just eight detention officers were responsible for more than 1,500 inmates over an eight hour period.

Also among the findings were countless reports of live bugs and mice in living areas.

Inmates told inspectors they had to buy their own soap to clean their rooms because products were being hoarded by other inmates or not offered by jail staff.

News 9 reached out to Jail Administrators about the findings but have not heard back.
