'Gingerbread man' who taunted cops gets caught

The suspected drug dealer left a note taunting police, but was caught soon afterward

By PoliceOne Staff

LANSDALE, Pa. — An alleged drug dealer who posted a note to a news website to police stating he would not be caught has been arrested after a brief foot pursuit.

Mark Gross Jr. wrote on the site to police, “im not turnin my run as fast as u can u cant catch me im da ginger bread man......sincierly da gingerbread man,” according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Gross was wanted for selling drugs, and an attorney had issued a press release asking for the public's help in locating him.

When police caught Gross in a parking lot, the suspect allegedly tossed four bags of heroin as he ran, according to the article.

He has been charged with flight to avoid apprehension, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, police stated.
