Convict Gives Himself up to Police, Has Coffee

August 14, 1991

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) _ An escaped murderer rang a policeman’s doorbell early Wednesday, handed over a sawed-off shotgun and sipped coffee and chatted until other officers came and arrested him.

″We made some coffee and had a couple of sandwiches, and I called my colleagues to collect him,″ Superintendent Karl-Einar Wahlund told Swedish news media.

Jussi Ondin, a former local resident, had turned up early Wednesday at Wahlund’s home in Ockelbo, a village 100 miles north of Stockholm.

″My wife got up and the two of them sat and talked about reincarnation,″ Wahlund said.

Ondin, 48, escaped July 26 from prison in Leuven, Belgium, where the naturalized Swede was serving a 30-year sentence for killing a policeman during a previous escape attempt.

Police said the Hungarian native is suspected of blowing up a Swedish military arms depot five years ago.
