This alleged robber chose an unfortunate place to hide from the police. Tricks this lame don’t even work in hide-and-go-seek.

Charlotte news14 reports:

Officers arrested Richard Lee Simmons late Tuesday, but he managed to escape and ran into the woods.

Police searched the area with dogs and even the help of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police helicopter, but could not find him.

Early Wednesday morning officers found Simmons hiding in his bed at his house on Redmond Drive.
