Two For Tuesday

For the second time in one day, a suspect has escaped from custody while in the back seat of a police cruiser. When I wrote about the first story, I had this advice for the police officers involved.

Might I suggest the use of handcuffs next time, officer?

Well, not only was the guy in this story cuffed, but...

Aside from breaking and entering and resisting arrest, Anderson now faces a charge of larceny under $250. That charge comes from the theft of [Gardner police Sgt.] Wrigley's handcuffs during his escape.
