Prisoner Escapes Jail by Mailing Himself out in a Box

A prisoner in a German jail remains at large after placing himself inside a box destined for courier pickup. Trucks arrive at this jail weekly to pick up products made in its workshop, and the prisoner apparently took advantage of this security breach.

One of the Uncle Johns Bathroom Readers I just got has
an almost exact story. The guy there was mere minutes away from pulling it off. He pulled the tape away that was covering a little peep hole. Delivery guy just happened to look that way and saw his eyeball. GGGGGG

Gotta give them both an award for chutzpah if nothing else. GGGG

Some people pull similar ideas on boxes that are going to be sent by air. They don't realize the cargo holds aren't pressurized. What a horrible way to go.

Finally, I read of some guy that stowed away on an airliner in the wheel well for the nose wheel. Can't remember if he lived.

Usually wheel well travelers don't make it, but I suppose it's possible in the way maybe one out of a hundred Golden Gate jumpers makes it.

Anyway, about the box guy: it just feels good when somebody pulls a caper, even if they're bad folks. Like the people that robbed Harry Winston's. Heists!
