ALBANY,  GA (WALB) – A metro Atlanta woman and her boyfriend are charged with planning a violent jail break in Pelham.

Police say 23-year-old Tamah Wallace had assault rifles and other weapons with her when they picked her up Sunday. They believe she was planning to storm the Pelham Jail to get her boyfriend 30-year-old Jason Clark.

She was caught when someone reported a suspicious car parked behind a storage building on Highway 37 in Camilla Sunday afternoon.

Police say in addition to the weapons, which included an AK-47 assault rifle, knives and rope, the couple's 1-year-old baby was in the car, too. Several days of jail phone records revealed their plan.

Wallace and Clark are both charged with conspiracy to commit escape. Clark was already serving time on aggravated assault and drug charges.

Clark had just been transferred from Gwinnett county to the Pelham detention center on Thursday and had planned the jailbreak for Sunday evening.

Pelham police say thanks to Camilla officers and the citizen phone call, something that could have ended in tragedy, was avoided.
