Hoorn, Apr 22(ANI): A Dutch minimum-security prison has been robbed twice in the past six weeks, where television sets were stolen from inmates' rooms when they were on weekend leave.

The prison, in the town of Hoorn, is for inmates near the end of their sentences.

The facility is part of a Dutch Government initiative to help the prisoners gradually mix back into society. They are typically allowed weekend leave.

A Dutch Justice Ministry spokesman said that the thefts happened on two separate weekends about a month apart in March and April, The Telegraph reports.

The spokesman added that the investigating officers are still not been able to confirm how the burglars gained access.

No arrests have been made yet. (ANI)
