Maybe it was the red beard that gave her away…

Last week, police in Roswell apprehended a California man on charges of kidnapping, robbery and carjacking. Taken to the police station to face further questioning, the suspect — wearing a blue jumpsuit from the Chaves County detention center — managed to break free from officers and run away.

About two hours after the escape, police issued an alert saying the suspect had been spotted on a security camera no longer wearing the blue prison jumpsuit, but a red skirt and a colorful scarf on his head. In addition, he was carrying a pink purse.

Suspect Austin Medford caught on security camera. Note the red skirt.

A photo of the suspect in the Albuquerque Journal shows him sporting a mop haircut and a distinctive red beard.

At the time of this posting, the suspect is still at large, apparently still making a fashion statement in Roswell.

  1. When you write the sequel to this episode, gve this upstanding rock and roll historian the non de fugitif ‘Lola’!
    He may be a cretin in most respects, but this guy is surely inspired by/knocking off the Kinks’ 1970’s hit of the same name…

    Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls
    It’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world
    Except for Lola
    Lo lo lo lo Lola

    Who’s going to see the beard? A pink mask to complement the purse…nice touch. The next addition to her rap sheet will be soliciting


  2. Austin looks awesome! I wish I had gone through High School with him Cigarette 🚬 🍺🔥…. do you remember when Tyler met Robbin’ the Hood? I love that story.
