2-Year-Old Gives Police Dad’s Hiding Place

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Jan. 10 (UPI) — Police in Florida said a 2-year-old boy clued officers in to his wanted father’s hiding spot in the attic.

St. Petersburg police said officers went to the home of Valdet Gjeloshi, who was wanted for violating his probation, Saturday afternoon and the mother of his child, Megan Merschen, told them Gjeloshi was not home, the Tampa Bay (Fla.) Times reported Tuesday.

However, Merschen admitted Gjeloshi was in the home when the 2-year-old child blurted out that his father was in the attic.

Gjeloshi, 29, was arrested and charged with violation of probation and resisting an officer without violence. Merschen, 25, was charged with obstruction.

Gjeloshi’s father, Ismet Gjeloshi, 62, answered his son’s phone Sunday and said the probation violation stemmed from a miscommunication about Gjeloshi’s court date.
