HOME SWEET JAIL PUT UP FOR SALE ON eBAY
HUNTSVILLE, MO. -- Along wiht concert tickets, sports, memorabilia and designer handbags, add a Missouri jail to the list of things you can buy on eBay.

Randolph County officials have decided to seel their old jail on the auction site. Bidding starts at US$32,500, said Jim Myles, a county commissioner.

County leaders say they got the idea from neighboring Howard County, which sold its jail to a Los Angles lawyer who plans to renovate it into a country getaway.

"After Howard County sold their jail, we were kind of jealous," Myles said.

"We wished we had been first", he said.

The two story structure resembles a quaint home more than a secure lockdown. That's because until 1989, the jail doubled as home to the county sheriff and his family., with a separate living quarters including a full kitchen and fireplace. The sheriff's wife even cooked meals for prisoners.
