Valdet Gjeloshi, Fugitive, Turned In By 2-Year-Old Son

Posted: Updated:

Well, at least his son believes honesty is the best policy.

A St. Petersburg police report obtained by the Tampa Bay Times says a fugitive's 2-year-old son told authorities his father was hiding in the family's attic.

Valdet Gjeloshi was wanted for violating probation on a battery charge.

Gjeloshi's wife, Megan Merschen, had told police that he was not in the house. But when his son said otherwise, police soon found and handcuffed the unlucky man on the run.

Gjeloshi was charged with a parole violation and for resisting arrest without violence, according to Pinellas County Sheriff's records.

The 29-year-old's rap sheet includes arrests for battery and DUI, according to arrest records.

This isn't the only time a 2-year-old has helped cops pursue law breakers.

Last Year, the Deccan Chronicle reported that a 2-year-old boy told police that his father had murdered his wife.

There are also plenty of other examples of kids turning in their parents for crimes such as drug possession and molestation.
