Man runs to jail

Sunday, December 16, 2001

MUNCIE, Ind. -- A burglary suspect made it easy for police to arrest him this week. While being chased by deputies, he ran to the local jail.

Christopher S. Newsome, 26, of Portland, was suspected of breaking into the Randolph County Courthouse early Tuesday and taking $25 from a receptionist's desk, police said.

A suspicious janitor at the courthouse found Newsome hiding in a closet.

Sheriff's deputies then spotted Newsome running across the parking lot of the county jail and caught him at the front door.
