DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — Dallas Police are searching for three inmates who were released by mistake in recent days.

This month, the department began using a new electronic records system. The department says a mistake with the system prevented the burglary suspects from being charged within the required 72 hours.

As a result, the jail was forced to release the inmates.

Officers are searching for the men with plans to re-arrest them.
