Inmate Mails Himself Out of Prison

A convicted drug dealer escaped from a German prison by mailing himself out:
    The 42-year-old Turkish citizen -- who was serving a seven-year sentence -- had been making stationery with other prisoners destined for the shops.

    At the end of his shift, the inmate climbed into a cardboard box and was taken out of prison by express courier. His whereabouts are still unknown.

    The chief warden of the jail told the BBC this was an embarrassing incident.
I thought plans like this only worked on Hogan's Heroes.

It worked because he sent himself express. If he'd done ground freight, they would have caught up with him!
