He’s been spotted, but got away again. A suspect that somehow escaped from a sheriff’s car while handcuffed Monday afternoon was spotted on Tuesday on East Main Street in Grass Valley. Grass Valley Police Sergeant Alex Gammelgard says that a caller reported John Grimes had been seen in a business and was walking down East Main Street. Police and Sheriff’s officers responded to the call and set up a perimeter and began a foot search of the wooded area behind Sierra College.

Apparently, Joe did not realize the men entering the abandoned house were officers and had pulled his knife for protection. Joe was booked on illegally entering a dwelling as well as wielding his knife and possession of paraphernalia. Grimes is still wanted by law enforcement.
