Man wanted for rape found in huge Delco car lot
UPPER CHICHESTER, Pa. - October 18, 2010 (WPVI) -- Police say they have found a man, wanted for rape, who was hiding in a huge car lot in Upper Chichester, Pa.
According to Upper Chichester Police, this all began when officers tried to serve an arrest warrant Monday afternoon at Auto Logistics, an off-loading business for area dealerships.
An employee tells Action News that the suspect is a temporary worker who has only been with the company a few months.
That employee goes on to say the suspect had previously been to prison and was, quote, "hell-bent" on not going back.
The man fled and ran into a car depot off of Conchester Highway, near I-95.
The depot was locked down as police searched for the man. He was found shortly before 6:30 p.m.
The man's identity has not yet been released.
