STEVE INSKEEP, Host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

There may be a downside to a minimum security prison. Inmates at a prison in Holland received a weekend furlough. And when they returned, they discovered their televisions were missing. The TVs were stolen while the prisoners were away. It's the second time it's happened in six weeks. And so far, nobody has been thrown in jail with them for the crime. Apparently, this is not the kind of neighborhood where you can leave your door unlocked at night.
