Best of the Blotter: Escaped Prisoner Found in Mom’s Dresser

Man Hides in Mom’s Dresser

Before moving to this week’s Bay Village Police blotter, please consider the strange case Fairview Park Police ran into last week as an escaped prisoner from Fairview Hospital was found hiding in a hollowed-out dresser at his mother’s home in Cleveland. The saga began when a prisoner temporarily released on medical furlough fled from Fairview Hospital rather than return to Fairview Park City Jail on June 4. Fairview Police searched the surrounding area and failed to find the escapee. But later in the day, police received information that the male was at his mother’s residence on Worthington Ave in Cleveland. Officers responded and could not initially locate the male in the house, even though it was reported he had just been there. Officers checked a little closer and located the male hiding inside a dresser which had the interior of the drawers cut off and the rear panel removed.
