Prisoner in Las Vegas tried to escape custody, police say, but gamble didn't pay off

The white pickup truck had just pulled in to the parking lot when Gregory Ganci was walking out of the medical center in shackles and chains.

Not that the prisoner knew it at the time, but the truck had a handgun and $2,800 in it. The engine was idling, and there wasn’t anyone sitting in the driver’s seat. It was about 9 a.m. Wednesday.

The 52-year-old Ganci was scheduled to be sentenced for a series of violent felonies, including convictions for kidnapping, robbery and intimidating a witness. He would likely get heavy time. It was possible, even likely, he wouldn’t be eligible for parole.

Ganci had demonstrated he was not a fan of captivity; he’d had fugitive warrants out for him in California and Illinois in the past. He was being escorted by a lone Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officer to an unmarked car that would head for the Clark County Detention Facility. Then he’d go to court and hear his fate.

He won't be going anywhere anytime soon.
