An alleged car thief who offered to provide information about a murder case escaped earlier tonight from Police Headquarters. Hector Gomez, 28, was arrested in Kensington Sunday night for driving a stolen car, police said.

Gomez was unable to make bail yesterday. At about 1:30 p.m., he was taken to headquarters, at 8th and Race streets, where he told cops he had information to provide about an unsolved homicide case. Police officials said Gomez was left in an interview room until about 5 p.m., when he managed to dig a hole through the room’s drywall ceiling. Gomez, who has 15 prior arrests, managed to squeeze through duct work, drop into a hallway and take off.

Any and all one-liners referencing "Shawshank Redemption" or the "Fugitive" are welcome, of course.
