Teen breaks into prison to see jailbird ex

A lovesick German teenager tried to break into a prison to win back his jailbird ex, according to reports.

The unidentified 18-year-old pulled a Romeo by climbing high to reach his true love - but with this teen scaling a 13-foot prison wall to get to the barred-window of his ex's cell, according to the BBC.

The half-naked teen was so devoted to the jailed girl he refused to climb down - with the fire brigade in Vechta having to use a ladder to capture him, the BBC said, citing local reports.

The heartbroken teen now faces possible charges for trespassing, according to the report.

However, it was not clear if he had any success winning back his ex, who is also 18 and reportedly dumped him shortly before his break-in bid. It was also a mystery why he took such drastic action rather than booking a prison visit, the BBC said.

The teen used a street lamp to get over the wall into the young offenders' prison - with authorities now wrapping it in barbed wire, German broadcaster NDR said, according to the BBC.
