Teen back in custody following bathroom break escape

















(Timothy Allen led police on a pursuit that ended in a foot chase on
February 5. He was driving this car.)


PLUMMER, Idaho. - A 17-year-old who escaped police custody Tuesday afternoon was recaptured by Coeur d'Alene Tribal Police around 5:10 p.m. Tuesday.

Timothy Allen had been in a Kootenai County juvenile detention center after his arrest following a police pursuit in early February. Tuesday, Allen was taken to tribal court at a Coeur d'Alene Tribe justice center in Benewah County to face charges unrelated to the February pursuit when he made his escape.

According to officials, Allen asked to use the bathroom and when he was permitted to do so, he fled the justice center on foot, still in handcuffs. Courthouse security personnel were unable to apprehend him.

After around five hours, police found him near Plummer High School.

In addition to charges Allen was already facing, charges related to Tuesday's escape will be filed, though they have yet to be determined.

More Information:

In the February chase, Allen led police on a pursuit that crisscrossed the Idaho/Washington border.

Allen fled from police on foot after losing control of his car on the Idaho side of the border. Three people in the car with him were quickly arrested.

The manhunt for Allen was called off after K9 teams failed to track him, but about an hour later Allen was spotted in the Pleasant View area and arrested.
