HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii public safety officials who normally worry about inmates breaking out of prison are investigating break-ins at the Women’s Community Correctional Center.

Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Toni Schwartz tells KHON-TV (https://ow.ly/H4hDd ) it’s unusual to hear about someone breaking into a prison instead of trying to break out.

She says officials noticed a cut in the chain link fence of the Kailua property Thursday morning. She says some items were stolen from a maintenance shed.

The hole in the fence has been repaired and police are assisting in the investigation.

Schwartz says there has been at least one previous break-in at the prison. It’s the only women’s prison in the state.
