February 2, 2013

36 year-old Lorenzo Chandler managed to walk out of the Clay County jail on Saturday morning, but thanks to some heads-up law enforcement, deputies were able to apprehend him in about 45 minutes, according to the Sheriff's Department.
"He got away, but it was only for about 45 minutes," a source at the Clay County jail said at about 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. "He won't be getting away again."
According to the source, Chandler had been arrested for utility fraud, accused of cutting his way back into his electrical meter when his power was cut for now paying his bill.
He was apparently receiving power illegally and he was picked up on the charge.
