Indiana fugitive gets stuck in chimney while eluding cops

Written by on August 8, 2020

Indiana firefighters rescued a man who climbed up a fireplace chimney to avoid being captured by police — only to get stuck.

Cody Methanial Sargent shimmied up the chimney when members of U.S. Marshals Task Force showed up at his house in Evansville, the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office said Friday. They went to the home Thursday to arrest him for violating parole in a drug case.
