Cops locate second teen who escaped Falkenburg Academy

- The second of two teens who escaped from the Falkenburg Academy late last month has been found.

The St. Petersburg Police Department says a tip led officers to a home in the 300 block of Northeast Avenue North Tuesday morning, where they found 17-year-old Anthony Cook and took him into custody.

Officials had been searching for Cook since he and another teen, 18-year-old Anthony Bays, escaped from the Falkenburg Academy on January 31.

Both teens were there on Grand Theft Auto charges when they managed to escape through a hole in a fence during recreation time and flee the area.
