This is totes crazy.
A Florida man tried to help his legless girlfriend evade police capture by hiding her in a plastic tote — only to be foiled because a cop saw the whole thing.
Krystle Lee Anderson, 39 — who lost her legs to injuries from a 2015 gun battle with cops — was on the run after skipping out on a court date in Orange County, where she was standing trial for armed kidnapping and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a law enforcement officer stemming from the 2015 incident, according to local newspaper The Ledger.
When Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies and US Marshals came knocking at her boyfriend John Robert Carr Jr.’s Winter Haven home Tuesday, the 48-year-old man claimed Anderson wasn’t there.
Catch is, one of the officers spied him through a bedroom window cramming the 4-foot-tall woman in a plastic bin moments earlier.
Sheriffs arrested the couple, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
In 2015, Anderson held up a Burger King with a BB gun and threatened one of her relatives there, according to an Orlando Sentinel account from the time. A cop responding to the incident instructed her to drop the air gun, and she instead pointed it at him, prompting him to open fire, the paper reported.
She lost her legs from the injuries she sustained, the Ledger reported, citing information from sheriffs.
