Cop Out: Police Tell Murder Suspect Theyre Closed for the Night

A murder suspect on the run for more than a year was turned away when he tried to hand himself in to a police station because it was early closing night.

The 45-year-old fugitive - wanted over the killing of a criminal gang leader 15 months ago - tried to surrender at the station in Malmo, Sweden, a few minutes past 6pm.

He was amazed when a police officer answered the intercom and told him they were closed for the night.

"Closed? I'm suspected of murder and a wanted man – you guys really want to get hold of me," he replied.

But instead of detaining him, the officer directed him to a larger police station round the corner where police eventually arrested him.

The suspect's lawyer Gunnar Falk said: "It's a little strange. He is adamant that he had nothing to do with the murder and will plead not guilty when the case comes to court."

Police issued an arrest warrant for the suspect - who ran a taxi firm - when he went missing after a 31-year-old crime gang boss was gunned down at a cab rank.

But they have refused to say why the prime suspect was turned away when he tried to hand himself in.

"Things are a bit messy right now," said Commander Anders Oxelbrand.
