Breakout - Escape to Vegas
Hitching a ride out of prison? Armed robber Jody Thompson uses his charm and persuasion to land a prized job in the metal and furniture shop. Thompson then uses opportunism and nerve to hide in a furniture delivery truck, which drives him past guards out the prison gates. While Thompson is on the run, police track him down and engage in a high-speed car chase. Within minutes Thompson breaks into a home, steals a car and escapes. Three months later, Thompson is found in Las Vegas and captured.
Jody Thompson started plotting his escape as soon as he was sentenced. Using charm and opportunity, Thompson eluded police of his whereabouts for three months before being recaptured.
