Police in Philadelphia say a man wanted for multiple crimes that happened after he escaped a jail work detail Friday has been caught.
Marion Chad Spears is accused of walking off that work detail, then walking into a Philadelphia business, demanding an employee write him a large check, then kidnapping her and making her get the check cashed. Police say he then dropped her off on the side of the road outside Philadelphia.
Philadelphia Police Chief Richard Sistrunk says Spears was taken into custody Monday night in the Birmingham area. He is awaiting extradition.
