Tied-up man, 92, chews himself free
A 92-year-old man chewed through masking tape for two hours to free himself after two men bound him to a chair and robbed his house.
King County sheriff's Sergeant John Urquhart said two men knocked on the victim's door in Shoreline yesterday and asked to use his phone, claiming their car broken down.
But once they entered, the men grabbed the victim's arms and taped him to a chair.
Sergeant Urquhart says the men spent more than an hour in the home looking for valuables, eventually darting off with more than $US400 in cash and the victim's 2000 Ford pickup truck.
It took the man two hours to chew through his restraints, but other than bruises, he was not injured.
The robbers were still at large, police said.
Wheely dumb thieves' snow tracks
Police nabbed a trio of thieves in southern Sweden after they used wheelchairs as getaway vehicles but literally forgot to cover their tracks.
Two men and a woman allegedly cleaned out two basement storage areas of an apartment, Swedish news website The Local reported, citing the Kvallsposten newspaper.
Police caught up with them after they followed tracks in the snow left by two of the wheelchair-bound suspects.
"People had seen them at the spot, but they had managed to escape. However, since two of them were in wheelchairs, they did not get very far.
The tracks were not difficult to follow in the snow. We did not even need a dog," Leif Nilsson, a police officer, told Kvallsposten.
The suspects were all previously known to police, but none were known to have used wheelchairs before.
