A GROUP of thieves got away with a jailbreak with a difference when they broke into a prison in northern Italy and stole a safe.
The robbers, who are still at large, broke into the prison director's office overnight Tuesday and made off with a safe containing around 5000 euros ($7151), the Corriere della Sera newspaper said.

I’d put Commissario Salvo Montalbano on the investigation.
I guess they were convicted the risk was worth it.

Why would a prison need to have $7K in its safe?
