Fugitive Surrenders After Cops Cater To Costume Request

Approved ~~ MJM

KANKAKEE, IL — A wanted man agreed to turn himself in to police Wednesday on one condition — they make his mugshot suitably festive for Halloween. It happened after the Kankakee County featured Brandon Conti on one of its “Warrant Wednesday” posts on Facebook.

Conti, who was wanted on a warrant for driving under the influence, commented on the post, writing, “I’m appalled. Where’s my costume?”

Police complied with his request, editing his photo so Conti was now decked out in a “Stranger Things” Scoops Ahoy costume, and telling him to “sail” himself into the police station to hold up his end of the bargain.

A pleased Conti agreed.
