Cops, coffee & doughnuts

    A team of FBI agents was traveling through New Jersey on the hunt for fugitive murder suspect, James Perry Turnage Jr. this weekend when they needed a break, and got one.

    The agents, based out of Atlantic City, made a pit stop in Vineland, where they had been searching for the Florida native.

    One of the agents went into the store to get coffee and noticed a man who resembled Turnage. The Fed quietly left the building, coffee in hand, and went to wait with his partners in the car. They saw Turnage leave and get into a car with South Carolina plates.

    They followed, and Turnage spotted the tail.

    The chase went on for just two miles and ended when Turnage turned down a dead end road.
