Inmate escapes German jail in box
A manhunt is under way in western Germany for a convicted drug dealer who escaped by mailing himself out of jail.


Quote:
The 42-year-old Turkish citizen - who was serving a seven-year sentence - had been making stationery with other prisoners destined for the shops.
At the end of his shift, the inmate climbed into a cardboard box and was taken out of prison by express courier. His whereabouts are still unknown.
The chief warden of the jail told the BBC this was an embarrassing incident.

@Robert Gentel,
That was VERY clever of him.

Who paid for the postage ?

@Robert Gentel,

@Robert Gentel,
There's the famous true tale of Henry “Box” Brown, a Virginia slave who escaped by having himself mailed to freedom in a crate. He had the help of an abolitionist doctor living in Philadelphia.

I got to explore a "patent cell" in Silverton, Co, circa 1890. Anybody escapes from jail or prison, it's human error.
