Greenfield Man Still At Large After Evading Police


In a daring escape that left authorities stunned, a man in police custody managed to break free and evade capture in Greenfield yesterday afternoon. The man, identified as 27-year-old John Smith, was being held on charges of robbery and assault and was due to appear in court later this week.

According to police reports, Smith was being transported from the Greenfield Police Station to the local courthouse for his arraignment when he suddenly bolted from the squad car and ran into the nearby woods. Despite a massive search effort involving multiple law enforcement agencies, Smith has yet to be apprehended.

“We are actively searching for Mr. Smith and urge anyone with information on his whereabouts to come forward,” said Greenfield Police Chief Michael Brown in a statement to the press. “We are doing everything in our power to ensure that he is taken into custody and brought to justice.”

Eyewitnesses to the incident reported that Smith appeared to be nervous and agitated during the transportation, prompting speculation that he may have been planning the escape for some time. His exact method of escape is still unclear, but police believe that he may have had accomplices waiting to assist him.

Residents of Greenfield are being advised to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the authorities. The police department has increased patrols in the area and is urging anyone who may have seen or heard anything to come forward.

The escape has sent shockwaves through the community, with many expressing concern over the safety of their neighborhoods. “It’s scary to think that someone who is capable of robbery and assault is now on the loose,” said Green.
