Device detected Mich. suspect's leaf pile hideout

Police investigating an alarm at a Mich. restaurant used a thermal imaging device to find a fleeing suspect

HASTINGS, Mich. — Police investigating an alarm at a Michigan restaurant used a thermal imaging device to find a fleeing suspect hiding in a pile of leaves.

The Grand Rapids Press reports that when the man was discovered concealed under leaves in a bush in Hastings, near Grand Rapids, he ran off again — and jumped into a river.

Police arrested the suspect after he went to a nearby motel to change his clothes. Officers found a backpack belonging to the man that contained waste from methamphetamine production and say he likely was making meth in the motel room.

The man is being held on a probation violation. He is expected to face drug charges.
