Some local officials asked for the community's help getting bailed out of jail.
It was all part of a muscular dystrophy fundraiser called "Behind Bars."
About 150 people were taken to "jail," hoping to raise $2,600 to get bailed out.
They worked the phones and asked friends to make donations.
Organizers say the jailbirds raised $41,000 by noon.
The money will go to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, including research and a summer camp for those living with muscle disorders.
Assistant Fire Chief Cliff Rushin says he raised the $2,600 needed, but continued making calls.
"Each time you get involved with one of these organizations where we are helping children, and also adults with muscular diseases, it's special to be able to take your time and give back to the community," says Rushin.
Organizers say they hope to raise $105,000 from the event.
Last year, they raised $98,000.
