Mystery escape

A suspected burglar escaped from the Loulé courthouse in what may well be one of the calmest prison breaks of the year. Somehow, the suspect was able to open the cell door and casually walk out of the building. But his bid for freedom did not last long. Police launched a man-hunt and 24 hours later he was arrested in a phone booth in Montenegro, Faro. He had been arrested for breaking and entering a house in the Faro area.
