LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –Lawton Police is used to people trying to break out of jail, but not into jail.

Just before 5:30 a.m. Friday, police were called out to the Lawton Pre-release Center because a woman had entered the facility without authorization.

A correctional officer told police he noticed a silver car in the parking lot. When he went to check on the car, he spotted 43-year-old Jennifer Gibson coming out of a window. Gibson admitted to the break-in because she was “trying to get some Hallmark cards that were on a desk.”

Gibson was arrested for unauthorized entry into a prison institution.

“We see many stories in the news of individuals attempted to escape or actually escaping a prison, but we seldom hear a story of a person being arrested for breaking into a prison,” Det. Nancy Lombardo said.
