Spokane fugitive flees but returns handcuffs

When Fred Nolan Jr. escaped from the police station, he was still wearing handcuffs.

On Wednesday, he returned the cuffs - by mail."Unfortunately, the envelope had no return address," police spokesman Dick Cottam dead-panned.

Nolan was brought in Monday on a burglary warrant and was sitting alone in an interview room when he disappeared, probably by covering the cuffs with his jacket and walking out, police said.

Nolan has been convicted 28 times, mostly for burglary, theft and possession of stolen property. He is now wanted for escape.
