JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — A bail bonds company in Wyoming has put new ankle monitors on inmates released to house arrest who were wearing faulty equipment.

Teton Bail Bonds realized some ankle monitors were not working properly from November to February.

Company owner Kelly Circle says none of the ankle monitors were being worn by high-risk offenders.

Circle says the problem emerged when a notification received by the company indicated one person had cut a monitor.

The replacement ankle monitors can track wearers to within 25 feet (7.6 meters) instead of the previous 100 feet (30.5 meters).

Circle says the company has five new monitors and is looking into getting more.
