The girls had climbed through a hole in the fence surrounding Collins Street Prison before entering the building, The Herald-News reported.

The friend who was not locked in the cell called the Joliet Fire Department. Firefighters used used a sledgehammer to break through the cell's brick wall and free the girl.

“Her jail time was about 45 minutes,” Joliet Fire Department Battalion Chief Mike Stromberg told The Herald-News.
