Pennsylvania authorities are looking for a fugitive drunk driving suspect who they say was holed up in a shuttered animal shelter.
Constable Mark Pasquale says police found 37-year-old Richard Allen Huey on Wednesday at the defunct Steve Courson Humane Society shelter in North Union Township, but that Huey slipped out a rear door as they arrived and remained at large.
According to the Herald-Standard in Uniontown, police say Huey’s wife, the couple’s 8-month-old baby, and another infant they were babysitting, were all living in the boarded up shelter, along with five dogs and several cats.
Pasquale tells the newspaper the couple had converted the shelter’s office area into a makeshift apartment. But he says the animals were free to run throughout the building, which was littered with garbage, debris and animal feces.
