Police seek escaped suspect

YOUNGSTOWN

Crime Stoppers of Greater Youngstown is offering a reward for information about a man who escaped police custody and is wanted on felony burglary charges.

Corey Cochrane, 24, of Youngstown, has warrants filed against him charging possession of criminal tools, criminal burglary and escape.

Around 6 p.m. Wednesday, police were following a car containing burglary suspects on the city’s South Side when three men fled the car, according to reports.

Cochrane was the only one of the three caught, and he was taken to the Youngstown Police Department for questioning by detectives, said Capt. Rod Foley.

Foley said detectives reported that Cochrane was cooperating with the investigation and seemed willing to provide information about the two other men who fled the car, which is why Cochrane wasn’t taken to jail immediately and instead was taken out to the streets to help with the investigation.

Police said Cochrane was in the back of a detective’s car when he jumped out, ran from police and stole a car parked behind a Williamson Avenue home.

“It appears he wasn’t [handcuffed] and that they felt that he wasn’t a flight risk,” Foley said.

Anyone with information about Cochrane is asked to call 330-746-CLUE, the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line.

What brainiac decided that someone that was running away was not a flight risk? Another fine job by YPD, I'm sure no one will be disciplined over this. Maybe we can give them all a raise. Which is the truth, was he at the police department or in the back of a police car? Great reporting Vindy, another article written by a sixth grader.

I think they are trying to say the the suspect was at the police department, but not put behind bars. Then they took him back out onto the streets. Anyway, please tell me that these idiots broke some rule and that this isn't standard operating procedure. Even my car has child locks on the doors that prevents the doors from being opened from inside! So what action will Andy take to correct Barney and Gomer?

This story is idiotic; why wasn't the suspect handcuffed?
