Indiana County man recaptured at girlfriend's home
A handcuffed Indiana County man managed to roll down the rear window of a state police cruiser, crawl out and flee to his girlfriend's White Township home, according to a police report.
Douglas Allen Lydic, 29, of Commodore, is being charged with theft and receiving stolen property for taking the handcuffs in addition to escape charges in the Sunday incident, police said. He was taken into custody for another incident about 7:45 p.m. Sunday and placed in the cruiser while troopers were securing evidence at the scene. Despite a search of the area, Lydic could not be found, police said. No charges have been filed in the original incident.
At 11 a.m. Monday, police said they found Lydic at the home of his girlfriend, Tiffany Nicole White, 25, who is charged with hindering apprehension. Both suspects are being held in the Indiana County Jail and face Jan. 2 preliminary hearings before District Judge Guy Haberl. Lydic's bail is $25,000 and White's bail is $10,000.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
