A 71-year-old man convicted on theft charges in 1991 has been arrested 22 years after he broke out of prison.
Roger Perdue, who escaped from a correctional facility in Ohio, was recently discovered living with his wife in Kokomo, Indiana, WLWT reports.
Authorities with the Ohio State Highway Patrol said that they received a tip regarding the whereabouts of Perdue, who fled his work detail in March of 1992. Perdue was in his fifth month of a five-and-a-half year sentence for grand theft, according to WBNS.
Welp! Guess it’s never too late to suffer consequences for foolish actions.
