By Mark Hallburn

You can run, but you can't hide from the long arm of the law. AChristopher Scott Cunningham Putnam County teen learned that lesson the hard way, Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011.

According to Divison of Juvenile Services Deputy Director Denny Dodson, Christopher Scott Cunningham, 19, of Route 1, Poca, was being transported to their facility in Tucker County, following an afternoon court hearing in Putnam County. The driver stopped for gas on Goff Mountain Road, in Cross Lanes, when Cunningham allegedly escaped. 

Cunningham's freedom did not last long. After a short manhunt the baby-faced Houdini was captured, shortly before 7:00 p.m. Police tell PutnamLIVE.com Cunningham was found hiding in a boat house near Fenton Circle, in Nitro.

Before his run for freedom, Cunningham was being held on misdemeanor domestic battery and destruction of property charges Now he faces felony escape charges. There isn't any word on whether the driver will be disciplined.

After his arrest, Cunningham was carefully transported to the South Central Regional Jail and Correctional Facility, in Charleston-without a stop for gas. Officials booked and photographed him at 10:00 p.m., according to the jail's web site.

Now Cunningham is being held without bond.

Cunningham's Putnam County Court case number is: 05-JD-78 07-JD-41.
