Swedish naked policeman arrests fugitive in sauna

How often do you come across a story while surfing the internet and you resist the urge to check it out – well, that’s why I’m here!

I find these things so you don’t have to!

Dateline: Copenhagen, Denmark

There’s no escape from the long arm of the law in Sweden, no matter what kind of suit they are wearing…swimming or, well, Birthday.

Copenhagen police say an off-duty police officer found himself sitting in the same sauna in Rinkeby, a Stockholm suburb, as a fugitive who had dodged a jail sentence for aggravated assault, among other offenses.

After recognizing each other, “the naked police officer calmly told the man that he should consider himself arrested.”

The officer then called colleagues to pick up the fugitive, adding “the arrest was undramatic and the wanted man didn’t try to flee.”

The officer was praised for the March 29 arrest and police warned fugitives on Facebook: “We are everywhere. Even if you do not see us, we are there.”   I suppose, no matter HOW much you see of them…

And that’s your Fact or Fiction….I find these things so you don’t have to on Star 96-7.
