For a second day the police are searching the area around Alepouhori near to Loutraki. On Monday morning a police patrol tries to stop a VW TOUAREG for a routine check-up but the car does not stop and the police shot at its tires. A man jumps out of the car – Vasili Paleokostas, who few weeks ago ran away from the prison in Koridalos.

In front of the eyes of the policemen, he runs off to a nearby forest and now, for a second day, the police cannot find him. It is unclear why the policemen let the criminal run away. The police, the Special Forces and police helicopters are searching for the criminal but Paleokostas remains uncatchable and invisible.

Five mobile phones and one Kalashnikov were found in the car, which had stolen license plates. It is interesting to note that the stolen plates are from the same type of car – VW TOUAREG. Vasilis Paleokostas has a weakness for this type of car, because before he had used it too. The car is high and it is perfect for rough terrains. Besides that, in sharp turns it can lower up to 70 degrees without losing balance and turning over.

Late last night in the presence of the District Attorney, the police searched a two floor house in Alepouhori, which turned out to have been Paleokostas’ hiding place. In the house the police found wigs, hats, make-up but not money and weapons. The house is owned by a former mayor and was rented three months ago by a woman who said she was pregnant and she will live there with her husband.

According to ALTER TV, Vasilis Paleokostas was a frequent guest in the Loutraki casino and his accomplice Alket Rizai has been in Montenegro for a long time.
