Texas fugitive caught in pile of teddy bears
Last week, we had a story about a burglary suspect police said they caught under a pile of clothes.
An El Paso man has topped that. According to this report:
Soon after, [suspect David] Caro ditched his car near a traveling carnival that was setting up near Zaragoza and Gateway East, police spokesman Darrel Petry. Caro parted company with his passenger and disappeared inside the carnival.
Police stayed on the case, and it did not take Sherlock Holmes to find their man. They tracked him to a game booth with an array of teddy bears for prizes.
"The officer was able to see the offender's tennis shoes sticking out from under the teddy bears. His red shirt and a ball cap were found in a box next to him," Petry said.
Police pulled Caro from the pile of stuffed animals, then arrested him on suspicion of aggravated assault against a public servant and evading arrest.
You can read the full story n the El Paso Times web site -- if you can bear it.
