Suspect Escapes from Philly Police Headquarters

Philadelphia Police are red-faced, after apparently losing a criminal suspect from right inside their own police headquarters Monday.

And get this: they say the guy escaped by crawling right into the ceiling!

Hector Gomez is a burglary suspect who said he had information on a homicide.

After questioning, he was left alone in an interview room at police headquarters.

When officers returned, they discovered he had escaped into the ceiling! He may have crawled through the building's ductwork, and slipped out of the building unnoticed.

Police are investigating the incident and searching for Gomez.
