He was able to run but could barely hide.
A man who was wanted for car theft and failing to pay at a gas station was sent to jail Friday after police found him hiding inside a teddy bear in Manchester, England, according to Greater Manchester Police.
Joshua Dodson, 18, stuffed himself inside the giant 5-foot teddy bear at his girlfriend’s house when he tried to escape from police, according to the Sun.
“When we went to arrest him, our officers noticed a large bear breathing in the address before finding Dobson hidden inside!” Greater Manchester Police tweeted.
Dodson was caught when police raided his girlfriend’s home and spotted the teddy bear in a corner of the house “breathing.”
Our neighbourhood task force and divisional tasking team in #Rochdale could bearely believe what they stumbled across last month in search for a wanted man…We certainly had a more than bearable time bringing to justice one of the town’s thieves last week! https://t.co/yl7SXaeomX

That’s when police yanked the man from the teddy bear inside the home.
Dodson admitted to stealing the Mitsubishi SUV in May — as he also admitted to stealing a Vauxhall Astra van in March, a toolbox, two tablets.
