Wanted man uses 'DIY escape route' to evade police in Leeds

Recommended Posts

Police are searching for a wanted man who evaded capture at his home by dropping into an escape route under the floor.

 

The "very skinny" suspect performed the manoeuvre while officers waited at the front door.

 

West Yorkshire Police said he had installed a metal bar to reinforce the entrance, giving himself more time to get away as officers tried to get inside.

 

The "DIY escape route" led to a neighbour's house and was discovered after officers were forced to use hydraulic cutting equipment to get inside.

 

"Bolt hole, that's one way to do it," the Leeds West police team tweeted, along with a picture showing a square-shaped hole cut out of the floorboards.

 

"Wanted male who refused to answer the door then dropped into his DIY escape route. 1-0 to him, but we will arrange a rematch soon."

If they spent more time on old fashioned police work rather than wasting time tweeting, they may be able to catch him....or more likely wouldn't have evaded capture in the first place. Mind you, I suppose it gives the 4'11" blond bimbo pcsos something to do.

I see the guy made the trap three floorboards wide.

When I was just about twenty, I had a similar trap to get under the floor and store stuff. I remember mine was two floorboards wide. I was a lot more skinny then!

I am struggling to understand  why this is on a Thailand forum and why it's of any interest at all, to anyone?

The toerag probably thinks he is a clever, big time criminal.

I wonder what charge he is running from and what the sentence will be when he is eventually caught.

Good point.

 

Perhaps it comes under quirky.
