UPPER MARLBORO, Md.-- Note to self: When participating in a crime, it's best not to run toward the courthouse when fleeing the scene.
A suspect found that out the hard way when he fled in the wrong direction when officers responded Tuesday to an Upper Marlboro home invasion, according to Prince George's County police.
Officers called to a home in the 4900 block of Colonel Contee Terrace around 12:15 p.m. spotted four people fleeing from the scene.
Police caught three suspects within minutes, but a fourth suspect ran almost a mile toward the courthouse in Upper Marlboro.
Police surrounded the suspect in the courthouse parking garage and arrested him.
