An inmate at a prison in Texas ran away when he received treatment in a hospital. A day later he was found in the dishwasher in his girlfriend's apartment.

- He took out baskets and made a nice hiding place for himself, says Glenn Blank, chief of police in Jasper County.

The 20-year-old convict, who is in jail for aggravated robbery, was found only wearing boxer shorts and with the handcuffs still attached around the wrists, but with the associated chains sawn off.

- I've heard stories of escaped convicts who's being found in the fridge but never in the dishwasher, says Blank.
