Man accused of escaping the police and hiding in Omaha’s zoo

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – A 33-year-old man is accused of escaping police and trying to hide in Omaha’s zoo.

KETV-TV reports that officers on patrol on Tuesday noticed a wanted man driving a Chevy Silverado. When they tried to stop him, the man sped away.

Police said they later learned the suspect jumped a fence off Interstate 80 and entered the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium grounds.

Officers found the man near the elephant exhibit.

He was booked on an offense warrant that was suspended and escaped to avoid arrest and trespassing. His name was not published. It was not immediately clear whether a formal charge was being made.
