The man who escaped prison in Pennsylvania — and who’s currently on the run — ain’t no Robin Hood of the people, and he’ll likely be caught soon … so says a former U.S. Marshal.
We talked to Art Roderick Tuesday on “TMZ Live” and asked the veteran law enforcement official — who’s worked on cases like this one before — if Danelo Cavalcante is primed to elude the authorities for good, considering he’s gone uncaptured for almost 2 weeks.
Roderick tells us he does believe this fugitive will be brought to justice eventually, however … he does acknowledge it’s starting to look a little murky considering their ever-changing perimeters based on where this guy is spotted and where he might realistically be heading.
With that said … Roderick is confident Cavalcante is going to be apprehended, and that it’s just a matter of time.
Of course, the latest development is a concerning one — Cavalcante snagged a rifle from someone’s home in a small PA town. So, now, he’s armed and dangerous … which certainly ups the ante.
Roderick acknowledges the severity of the situation, but says he’s confident this guy probably isn’t out to hurt anyone — in all likelihood, he’s probably trying to flee the country.
On the question of whether locals might embrace his bandit-esque story — in the vein of American antiheroes like D.B. Cooper — Roderick halts that notion in its tracks, saying people in that area know damn well this isn’t a good guy, and will not embrace him.
FWIW, Calvacante is a convicted murderer … and he crab-walked his way out of Chester County Prison in one of the brashest escapes in a long time.
