Kenneth Ray Couch, 35,has been accused of a curious crime where he allegedly faked a heart attack to get away from a crime scene and then went straight to the hospital cafeteria to grab a bite to eat.
Deputies responded to a burglary call and then found out that Couch was picked up by ambulance at a business nearby and taken away in a hospital. When the ambulance arrived, however, Couch got and strolled into the cafeteria. Police later arrested him there.
He was charged with the burglary as well as falsely reporting an incident. He also was wanted on a bench warrant out of Caldwell County for failure to appear on two counts of theft by deception for cold checks.
That is quite a pile of charges and, if he was not experiencing angina before, he may now.
