Police: Convict Prefers Jail To Monks
ENNA, Italy, Jan. 3 (UPI) — Italian authorities said a man who has twice fled a halfway house told police he prefers jail to the monks who run the house.
Police said they arrested David Catalano, 31, Monday for fleeing the halfway house in Enna for the second time after a previous incident Nov. 21 and he told officers “prison’s better than the Santa Maria degli Angeli community home,” ANSA reported Tuesday.
Catalano, whose crime was not reported by ANSA, said he could not deal with the strict Capuchin monks who run the home.
Police said they took Catalano to jail.
