Officer late to work spots escaped inmate

APSometimes tardy is timely.

Wash. Corrections Officer Brandy Boyer says if she hadn't been 10 minutes late leaving for work Saturday morning she wouldn't have spotted a prison escapee.

Boyer told The Columbian (http://is.gd/Yv8Vzk ) she was driving to Larch Corrections Center in southwest Washington for her shift when she spotted a man wearing a prison-issued outfit of gray sweatpants, a white T-shirt over a white thermal shirt and a khaki stocking cap.

She called her sergeant, who told her they came up one inmate short during a head count. Boyer kept an eye on the man and called 911.

The inmate by that time had jumped a fence and hidden in blackberry bushes. That lasted until a Vancouver police dog showed up and bit the man. Boyer, the Vancouver officer and a Clark County deputy arrested him.

The inmate was identified as 28-year-old David Daniel McElroy, who was serving time for burglary and stolen property possession.
