HONOLULU (AP) - Officials are trying to prevent bedbugs from infesting an Oahu jail.

The state Department of Public Safety says it is tenting a module at Oahu Community Correctional Center that houses work furlough inmates. The department says the inmates in the module are able to leave the facility for work, making it possible for them to bring back bedbugs.

Tenting began Thursday and will continue until Saturday. During that time the inmates will be relocated to the Laumaka Work Furlough Center.

Department Director Nolan Espinda says the warden is taking preventative measures to keep the situation from turning into an infestation.
