Tonight's top story: Infamous crimminal Mario Frassenilli, as known as Mario the Mechanic, escaped from State Prison early this morning. Police are baffled as to how he bypassed security measures and warn that he's considered armed and dangerous. Frassenilli was incarcerated for larceny-theft, robbery, fraud, unlawful flight to avoid confinement, property damage and attempted murder. If you have any information or see him, police ask you not approach him and to contact them immediately at 555-867-5309.
Mario's a heavy-set, bald man with a thick mustache and of Hispanic descent. He could be dressed in virtually anything, but he was last seen wearing blue overalls and a red shirt. He doesn’t like talking and considering his current situation, few can blame him.
Born and raised in the slums, Mario discovered at an early age that he had a gift with machines. By the age of eleven he was stealing cars. By seventeen he was pulling bank jobs. He's fooled computers to think he’s company management, security officers, police and even public figures to get into homes and vaults. If that doesn’t work, he would simply disable devices in a matter of seconds.
Mario isn't one for violence but he won't hesitate use it if he's backed in a corner. Surprisingly, that's only happened once when he fell for the police trap that eventually lead to his arrest.
No one knows what he's up to now that he's escaped, but rumors are circulating that he's already stolen $40,000 from a local bank.
