A crook with a long rap sheet, Tyrone Johnson, escaped police custody in Brooklyn on Saturday, December 1, while he was still handcuffed, authorities have confirmed.
Police said that the 24-year-old culprit was pulled over for failing to signal just at around 4:30 a.m. at Osborn Street and Lott Avenue in Brownsville.
Police then discovered that the East New York native had an outstanding bench warrant for a drug charge. He eventually got arrested.
Johnson made a run to escape on the way to the 73rd Precinct station house. Cops say, he possibly escaped through the cruiser’s rear window.
The thing that whether the window was already open or he broke it up is unclear yet. According to the authorities, Tyrone, who is about 6 feet and 150 pounds, fled south on Thomas Boyland Street from Livonia Avenue.
Tyrone, who has a dark complexion, brown eyes and black hair, was last seen wearing dark jeans and a camouflage jacket.
This was not the first time he was taken into the custody. According to the cops, Tyrone has 16 prior arrests for offences including criminal mischief, grand larceny, robbery and gun possession.
