Safe stolen from jail
Inmates' savings for families taken from Pavia prison18 September, 16:45
(ANSA) - Pavia, September 18 - Burglars stole a safe containing thousands of euros from a prison in the northern Italian city of Pavia early Wednesday, police said.
The safe held around 6,000 euros put aside by inmates for their families, they said.
The thieves went undetected by the jail's surveillance systems.
A police union said the incident showed the "deplorable level of dysfunction and distraction" in the penitentiary, which it attributed to an upcoming expansion.
