A wanted man is in police custody Thursday after trying to escape “on the fly.”
Derek Burton was wanted on numerous charges including assault, escape and trafficking stolen weapons.
Des Moines police located him Thursday at a barber shop.
They say he ran from the shop still wearing the barber’s cape but was quickly surrounded and arrested.
On the DMPD’s Facebook page one of the arresting officers says “he ditched the cape when it didn’t help him fly.”
