Escape by Kiss

DEDHAM, Massachusetts () -- A woman's jailhouse kiss contained a handcuff key that allowed her lover to escape.


Christopher Glover, 20, was recaptured and indicted on charges of escape, possession of a dangerous weapon and armed carjacking. A grand jury Wednesday indicted Shannon Rideout, 19, on charges of aiding an escape.


Rideout wrapped the key in duct tape to slip it through the metal detector at the county jail Nov. 9. Then she hid the key in her mouth and passed it to Glover when she kissed him, said Assistant District Attorney Heather Kelley.


A week later, he used the key to unlock his shackles and escape from a sheriff's van.
