Arrested Suspect Escapes Back of Cop Car, Steals It

A man suspected of burglarizing an antique store escaped the back of a police cruiser and then stole it, said police in Texas, according to Police in the city of White Settlement said they caught 41-year-old Darren Douglas Porter burglarizing the shop on South Cherry Lane at about 7:20 a.m. Friday. Officers detained Porter, cuffed him, placed him in the back of the police car, shut the door and stepped away to talk to the storeowner. But Porter somehow got his cuffed hands in front of him and rolled down the window—even though the back windows are not supposed to roll down. He then tiptoed to the driver’s seat, got in and took off. Police said their chances of finding Porter are "very good."
