Dog helps criminal slip short leash
June 28, 2007
An Israeli criminal slipped away from house arrest by putting his electronic ankle monitor on his dog, police said on Thursday.
It wasn't until police came to take Nabil Farumi, convicted of attempted murder, to a sentencing hearing, that he was gone without a trace.
"After we searched the house we saw that he somehow managed to take the monitor off his leg and place it around he neck of his dog, who continued to walk around the house," said Yoram Danieli, a police commander in northern Israel.
