Monday, 17 November 2008
A man has escaped from jail after climbing into a cardboard box and posting himself out of jail.
The convicted drug dealer was serving a seven-year sentence in German prison when he seized the opportunity to stow away. The 42-year-old was making stationary with other prisoners that was planned to be sent to the shops. As the products were being packed, the Turkish citizen clambered inside a large box and made his escape via the postman.He was carried out of prison in the back of an express courier service, and cut himself out of the lorry once out of the gates. The dash for freedom was only noticed when the driver realised his lorry was damaged and reported it to the police.German authorities are now hunting for the escapee, who is still on the run. (Source)
