William Francis Blankenship

William Francis Blankenship, 22, is seen in an undated photo provided by the Porter County Sheriff's Dept. Police in northwest Indiana are hunting for Blankenship, who stole a police cruiser while handcuffed, and radioed police for help in finding a key to unlock his hands. Porter County Sheriff’s Sgt. Larry LaFlower says police didn’t tell 22-year-old William Francis Blankenship how to remove the handcuffs. Police say Blankenship somehow escaped from the back of the vehicle and fled after he was arrested on drug charges in Kouts, a small Indiana town about 50 miles southeast of Chicago.
