Police: Handcuffed man stole Pa. police cruiser

State police say they arrested 26-year-old Anthony Fox on drug offenses before stealing the squad, then crashing it

Associated Press

NANTY GLO, Pa. — A Pennsylvania man has been accused of stealing a state police cruiser and leading officers on a chase — after he had been handcuffed.

State police say they arrested 26-year-old Anthony Fox on drug offenses Saturday night in Nanty Glo, 60 miles east of Pittsburgh. They say he somehow got free from his seatbelt in the back of a police cruiser, got his cuffed hands in front of him and drove away.

Police say they gave chase and caught up to the Smicksburg man after he crashed the car in front of an apartment building in nearby Jackson Township.

Fox is in the Cambria County Prison on charges including escape, theft, driving under the influence and possession of drug paraphernalia. Online court records don't list an attorney for him.
