[December 31, 2009]  MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) -- Taking a bite out of crime has never been so bland at a southeast Michigan jail.

Failing freezers have forced Macomb County Jail inmates to forgo warm meals in favor of an endless stream of bologna and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Sheriff's officials said Wednesday that mold was spotted last month in the jail's 50-year-old freezers. But with no money for replacements, the sandwich diets may continue through early next year.

The Detroit Free Press reports that county officials warned commissioners as early as 2005 that the freezers needed to be replaced. Officials next month plan to ask commissioners for emergency funds to buy new refrigerators.
