An inmate who escaped from custody three days ago is on a crime spree in Pocahontas, Ark., where police say he stole an officer's gun, threatened the cop's wife and shot his dog.
James Lundry, 39, who was being held on felony charges of improperly using food stamps, escaped from a work detail with other inmates during a lunch break of Friday, stealing a vehicle and heading to Pocahontas, according to Police Chief Cecil Tackett.
Since Friday, police and civilians have had multiple run-ins with Lundry, who has previously been arrested multiple times in Pocahontas on misdemeanor charges. Lundry is now considered armed and very dangerous, Tackett said.
On Sunday, a caretaker of an abandoned house in the town found Lundry squatting inside, and told police it seemed he had been there for a couple of days. Police used scent-tracking dogs to follow Lundry's path from a back window to a parked vehicle. Police believe he entered the vehicle and left, leaving behind stolen items.
Around 11 p.m. Sunday night, Lundry entered the home of a police officer who was on duty elsewhere in the town, and took a .40 caliber Glock pistol, ammunition, and a tactical ballistics vest, Tackett said. He then confronted the officer's wife at the house, and brandished the gun at her before firing three rounds into and killing the couple's pet Pit Bull.

After all the stories about Cops just shooting family dogs — Who here is rooting for the inmate?
Its me Its Me,its Earnest T,,,extra points if you understand the referance.
Man bites dog story? Usually it is the cops slaughtering other people’s dogs.
It’s the food stamps bandito
I wonder what Lundy’s freeper name is?
“He’s a nut.”
I rather agree on this one. Police shoot people’s dogs and shrug it off as if it was nothing. Should work both ways.
lol The irony.....
Your comment is sick. You sound like an occupier who’d be happy to have felons running around stealing weapons and shooting cops’ dogs because a very relative few cops have rightfully/wrongfully shot dogs.
Cats are cheering
Shoot on sight without prejudice.
You don’t kill a man’s dog.
Naw, the man ought to kill it himself before wokking it. (duck’n & runn’n)
Well, that’s a switch. Dogs just can’t catch a break lately.
How did you do that?
Dang it. I’m so stoopit sometimes.
Just a weird coinkydink it happened to BE there. (It’s Lundry in the article anyhow, not Lundy)
