A Florida man left a childishly-written message for the deputies sent to detain him following the issuance of a warrant for his arrest, claiming he had already fled and would turn himself in after he had finished work.
The only problem with the message, it seems, was that it was an outright lie- he was found hiding in a dresser.
40-year-old Jesse Pack reportedly left the message -scrawled onto the back of a mattress with a crayon marker-like writing utensil- for Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies who were hot on his trail.
“I know my warrant is active,” the message read. “I’m not here. I am finishing a job and turning myself in to Volusia Branch Jail!! – Jesse Pack.”
Not satisfied with the mattress-gram at the front door, FCSO deputies began knocking, and were let in by a female occupant, who claimed he wasn’t home.
According to a statement by the agency, “Pack was found hiding in the fetal position in a small wooden dresser with a pillow in a bedroom,” complete with a glass pipe to complete the aesthetic.
“Ready or not, here we come!,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “This guy clearly thought he could hide from our deputies but this is not the first ‘cat and mouse’ game a fugitive has tried to play. We won’t stop until we find you! Great job by our team and now Pack can face his charges in Volusia County and Flagler County.”
Pack was booked in Volusia County on his original charges of Kidnapping and Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. In addition, Flagler County also charged him with Resisting Arrest without Violence and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
