Midland Man Makes Brief Escape From Transport Van
The Midland County Sheriff says a man made a brief escape on his way from Isabella County to the Midland County Jail.
The man was able to out-smart a locking mechanism in the transport van and escape out the back when they were stopped at the intersection of eastbound US-10 and Bay City roads.
He then was seen heading north.
A man who received a text alert about the escape went to look for him. He found the suspect still handcuffed, hiding under the US-10 overpass.
Officers arrived minutes later.
The unnamed suspect was being taken back to Midland County for felonious assault and failure to register as a sex offender.
