Ahh, the rewards of being slim:
Authorities have captured an inmate who escaped early Monday morning from the Haywood County Jail. Kristopher Allen White, 23, escaped from the jail around 4:00 a.m. Monday, according to Sheriff Melvin Bond. Bond said White apparently “shimmied” through the bars of his cell, and then used blankets to safely climb over a barbed wire fence.
“It appears he took his body and slipped through the bars of the cell,” Bond said. Bond said the bars in the cell were approximately four and a half inches apart. “I still can’t picture that,” he said of the escape. “It’s beyond my imagination to know how he succeeded in that.”
Investigators discovered White’s jail clothes and a blanket about a mile and a half away on the side of the road. They believe someone picked him up. According to Bond, after the escape, several of White’s associates called the sheriff’s department saying they had given him a ride. White, they said, said only that he was out of jail – not that he had escaped.
A barefoot White was back in custody Monday night in Brownsville after 14 hours on the run. He looked away from our camera as he was escorted into the jail. Bond had some advice for him. “Look at life good. It will be a while before you see it again,” he said. Before the escape, White was behind bars after initially being captured at the Mexican border. He is a suspect in several church burglaries in the area.
This story is kinda comedy…from the shimmy action all the way to the part about him robbing churches. SMH.
