Barry Kirkpatrick, who was to plead guilty to driving while disqualified, decided to elude the police by digging a tunnel under the cement floor of his basement. Police were in Kirkpatrick's home in Kitchener several times and couldn't find him. He was hunkered down in a dirt room under his basement.
A dresser covered the hole in the floor that led to the tunnel. The dresser was screwed to the floor, so that when police tried to move it, they couldn't, Brock said, adding Kirkpatrick unscrewed it from inside his tunnel to get out. An air supply and electricity had been routed to his makeshift room.
Rumour has it that he will be serving time in Stalag Luft III.
