GULF BREEZE, Fla. (WALA) - The Gulf Breeze Police Department is looking for a man who they say managed to give officers the slip.
Forty-year-old Dmitriy Glushko was arrested Monday during a traffic stop on an extradition warrant and placed in handcuffs, according to a Gulf Shores PD Facebook post. But Glushko managed to get a hand free, open the door of the cruiser, and run away in the area of Gregory Street and 14th Avenue, authorities said.
Glushko is 5 feet 10 inches tall with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black tank top with shorts, according to authorities.
Police also said it’s possible he could still have a handcuff attached to his wrist.
Anyone spotting Glushko is urged not to approach him and is asked to contact Gulf Breeze Police Department at 850-934-5121.
