Inmate Escape Pod

1980: Fred Caddedu escaped from Millhaven penitentiary in Kingston, Ontario by concealing himself inside an "escape pod" made out of a hollowed-out stack of dirty food trays.

The food trays were loaded onto a truck and taken to the unguarded, off-site kitchen to be cleaned. Once there, Caddedu just walked away. He was caught and returned to prison several months later.

His escape pod later became an exhibit in the Correctional Service of Canada Museum.

It is a shame this was retroactive ingenuity (after he already was behind bars). It's a shame he couldn't have applied himself that much BEFORE winding up in prison. If so, maybe he never would have ended up there to begin with!
