Wichita Drug Suspect Hides in Strangers’ Home


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A Wichita woman says her family will add more locks to their home after a frightening encounter with a drug suspect.

Police say officers were chasing a car early Tuesday when the driver bailed out, ran through a neighborhood, jumped a fence and entered an unlocked home.

Vanessa Wadsworth told KWCH-TV her mother and brother were awakened around 3:30 a.m. when the stranger ran inside. Wadsworth says her brother heard heavy breathing and someone heading for the basement.

Police pulled up and followed a trail of blood that Wadsworth says led them to the suspect hiding under a futon. Officers said the 25-year-old man had methamphetamine and scales when they took him into custody.
