(Westville, IN) - Complaints about mice at the prison in Westville are under investigation, according to Annie Goeller, spokesperson for the Indiana Department of Correction.
The investigation is in response to complaints from people like Tonya King, who said her loved one had told her some hair-raising stories about mice in his cell and elsewhere in prison since arriving there over a month ago.
King, who resides in South Bend, saw a few mice during a recent visit with her loved one at the prison.
Unfortunately, this is the time of year when mice begin moving indoors to get out of the colder weather, according to Goeller. But, if there is an issue, it will be remediated.
According to IDOC, Westville Correctional Facility has an average daily prison population of more than 3,000.
