A 24-year-old wanted to visit his imprisoned brother in prison in North Rhine-Westphalia - now he is behind bars himself. As the police announced on Friday, the Bielefeld man had appeared the day before at the Pont correctional facility near the Dutch border to visit his brother, but was arrested by the police.

According to the information, it became clear at the lock that the 24-year-old was wanted with an arrest warrant. The young man behaved cooperatively and immediately began his prison sentence of several years.
