Man Escapes Custody At Magistrate's Office

A manhunt is underway for a man who escaped custody Tuesday afternoon. Washington Police tell us Wednesday that he is still on the run.

The Beaufort County Magistrate's Office says Kenneth Deloach was making bond on a drug charge and was about to be released when officers tried to serve a probation violation against him. Authorities say when the officer went to take him in Deloach took off.

It happened around 1:50 p.m. in the basement of the courthouse.

Both Beaufort County deputies and Washington police officers are now looking for Deloach.

    Just to let you and everyone else know Kenneth is in custody no thanks to you, lol. He did get additional charges and he does have an extensive record. Think it may be his time to fall even shorter, I think thats called Habitual Felon (according to DOC wep page). Guess his time has come. I use to be in law enforcement and know Kenneth AKA "Green Eyes" AKA "Man" and he is not a nice person. He has been in trouble with the law since before he was 18. It is the concern of the community how long his record is because of him and people like him there is a drug problem in Washington. Until people stop worrying about what people say and continue to take up for these DRUG DEALERS we will not solve the problem. He has never had a real job or even tried to be a productive citizen so why should anyone care what happens to him if he does not even care about himself. He is far from perfect I agree. He made money by slowly killing other people by selling crack. It's not black or white its green him.

    You know its always going to be an ignorant person who has something to say about a person when they dont know anything about them or whats going on in ther life if thats the case and you have so much negative to say then how about you give him the money to support him self and his kids thats none of your business how long his record is its not you so why are you worried about it GOD said that we all are going to fall short and this is one of his times no one is perfect i know you all have fell short so until you get into that type of situation just mind your business and let the police do there jobs and not make it easier for them because i know im not going to thats there problem they let him get away they was not paying attention and also they willl bring you in for one thing and get you for another so many crocked cops get it together please i guess i am going to be a cop in washington they have such a easy job

    WOW! I just looked on the DOC website. Yeah, he's got quite a record. Selling drugs, DWI and even bad behavior in prison. A real model citizen.
