A man’s dirty laundry was aired out by police this past week after they found the fugitive hiding under a pile of soiled clothes. The man, Adam Michael Whitecotton, 21, of Highland Avenue first drew the attention of authorities when he allegedly stole cellphone accessories from the counter at Jewell’s Market on South Congress. Police were able to find the suspect in short order but Whitecotton lied about his true identity. When police discovered they had been had they obtained warrants charging theft and criminal impersonation and went to arrest him. However, he did not want to go quietly. “He ran into the kitchen area and hid in the laundry room under dirty clothes to evade arrest,” the police report reads, noting that when he was collared by officers, there was a baggie with about three grams of meth found on his person.
