NewsRoom.co.nz Agency Story at 11:38 AM, 11 Oct 2005

Police in Cambridge are searching for a convicted arsonist who escaped from a secure unit this morning.

Shane Reid, 28, was serving a two-and-a-half year sentence following arson attacks on two schools last year.

Police believe Reid is on his way from Cambridge towards Hamilton.

He is described as a dwarf and police say he should be easily recognisable.


[Later reports noted that he was captured that afternoon - see the excellently-titled 'Police nab arsonist dwarf after taxi bid for freedom']
