Personal and professional visits to the Kent County Jail were canceled Wednesday, January 8, after a water line broke about 7 a.m. outside the main entrance.
The Kent County Sheriff Department said they believe the damage is the result of the extreme cold temperatures.
The KCSD originally said the public entrance would only be closed until 1 p.m., but cleanup and repairs took longer than anticipated.
Those posting bond for an inmate were able to use the back entrance.

Juan Carlos Morejon
Sparta police put out a bulletin at the end of January that they were looking for an older couple that used a stolen credit card to make several purchases in the Village of Sparta on January 7, including groceries and gas. They were caught on surveillance tape at the Sparta Family Fare, and media outlets, including the Post, published a photo of the couple on their websites asking people to identify them.
According to Sparta Chief of Police Andrew Milanowski, they received numerous calls telling them who the couple was, and Officer Cook made contact with them. On February 9, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Juan Carlos Morejon, 57. He was arrested and lodged in t he Kent County Jail on February 10, and arraigned on February 11 on one charge of fraud—illegal use of a credit card. Bond was set at $4,000 cash or surety bond. At press time, he was still in custody.
