Prisoner escapes work detail in an unmarked Ga. police car
A state prisoner who escaped from a work detail Monday and stole an unmarked police car is still on the lam, authorities said.
Houston County Sheriff's Capt. Robert Clark said Dubroc escaped in a light green 2005 Crown Victoria. The car's Georgia license plate - which has probably been switched by now, Clark said - was GV34828.
Clark declined to comment on how the prisoner got access to the county-owned vehicle.
According to the Georgia Department of Corrections' Web site, Dubroc was serving a four-year sentence in the Dooly State Prison for burglary and drug possession. Yolanda Thompson, corrections spokeswoman, could not be reached immediately for comment today.
The state Web site described Dubroc as a while man with green eyes, 5 feet 5 inches tall and 170 pounds. His year of birth was listed as 1977, but the month in which he was born was not listed.
Anyone with information about the fugitive is asked to contact the sheriff's office at (478) 542-2000.
