MONROE, La. (AP) - A Louisiana man who rented a motel room for seven men and bought them sausage biscuits has been arrested, because authorities say the seven were escapees from a jail.
News outlets report 38-year-old Trevor Toney of Monroe was arrested last week on charges of assisting escape and accessory after the fact.
Court records say the seven men had escaped from Richland Parish Detention Center on Oct. 28.
The documents say cellphone data led investigators to a motel where Toney had rented a room. He was seen on surveillance video signaling the escapees into the room and was later seen bringing eight sausage biscuits from McDonald's.
Deputies surrounded the motel and arrested Toney and the escapees.
It's unclear whether Toney has an attorney who can comment on his behalf.
