Register on top of Iowa news.

This news story was posted at the BBC's Web site two hours ago:
US prison sees keys sold online

A prison in the US state of Iowa has changed its locks after a set of keys was sold online for $12.

The state spent $6,000 on refurbishing the Anamosa State Penitentiary after keys that belonged to a guard who retired in the 70s were auctioned.

Officials at the 135-year-old jail were not sure if the keys still worked but could not take any chances, a warden told KCCI-TV in Des Moines.

Anamosa is a medium-security jail but holds a number of violent criminals.

When I did a Google search for this story, even though, from what I can see, it's a day stale, the "Newspaper Iowa Depends Upon" deigned not to cover it.
