"The search in Huerfano County for a jail escapee from Costilla County was scaled back Thursday after law enforcement officers couldn’t find the suspect."Nice!! I guess that's why I won't be at work today, I "scaled back" the search for my car keys after I couldn't find them.It gets even better. The Huerfano County sheriff also had this to say:
“There’s really no organized search right now until we get a good location on him.”Or to phrase it differently, we're not going to look for him until we locate him!! Fortunately:
“We do not believe he is confrontational. It appears he’s doing all he can to remain hidden. He wants to get away.”And doing a mighty fine job of it, by the looks of things. Hmmm...I guess the take-home message is this. If you are going to live in or travel through Costilla or Huerfano counties, don't plan on being a crime victim. Or perhaps I should say, take measures to not be a crime victim. If you believe in the old notion that "crime doesn't pay", just consider how little it pays to be a crime victim in Costilla County. I think John Robert Fureigh can rest a little easier.
