Thieves Break Into Prison

A prison break usually involves someone wanting to get out, but someone actually broke into New Plymouth Prison in New Zealand Friday night. Firefighters responded to a blaze in the prison administration building and found the curtains on fire. Police were called because the window was found to have been forced open. A 50" plasma screen TV set was missing.
The level of security at the prison varies from building to building, according to the Corrections Department website.

The old jailhouse is surrounded by a large stone wall topped with razor wire, while a newer unit is surrounded by a fence topped with barbed wire.

Security measures include searches, dog teams, electronic security devices, cameras and closed circuit television.
