YORK, Pa. (AP) — A county prison in central Pennsylvania will furlough some work-release inmates because of a bedbug infestation.

Officials on Tuesday said the York County Prison will furlough about 90 male work-release inmates for three days so exterminators can spray infested areas later this week. The inmates will be allowed to go home or stay with friends or family.

The minimum-security prisoners are usually allowed to leave for employment and sometimes for funerals or other personal events.

The infestation is in trailer-type housing on the prison grounds where work-release inmates stay.

County spokesman Carl Lindquist said prison officials are working with the inmates to determine their plans while the trailers are being treated. If they don’t have a place to stay, they will remain at the prison in a different area.
