A dangerous criminal is being sought by ICE after he give their agents the slip and simply ran off right before they dumped him on a plane bound to deportation in Senegal.
Seriously. Dude jumped into a cab and sped away.
More from CBS News:
Federal agents are hunting a prisoner who slipped through their fingers in New York Tuesday. Mohamadou Mbacke, 31, was last seen at terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport. He escaped from immigration officials just before they were going to place him on a connecting flight back to Senegal.
Officials say Mcbacke bolted from three U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents after they removed his handcuffs at the security checkpoint. The Transportation Security Administration does not allow passengers to be handcuffed while on flights.
The suspect was able to dodge the ICE agents long enough to exit the terminal. He was last seen on surveillance video hopping into a cab.
Authorities say Mbacke was convicted in 2012 of two felony firearms offenses and served three years in prison in Michigan. In 2015, a judge ordered his deportation after he violated the terms of his status.
Now frankly, I wouldn’t want to be deported to Senegal either, but damn guys, how did the dude just run off? You’d think they’d be most on guard when they take the handcuffs off? Sheesh. Hopefully they’ll catch him soon. And also the other millions of illegal aliens.
