Lawmen in Pitt County found a woman who escaped police custody this afternoon in Greenville.
The Pitt County Sheriff's Office says Kelley Teel managed to get out of a sheriff's transport vehicle at the corner of 5th Street and Moye Boulevard when the cruiser was stopped for a red light. Deputies say the woman escaped out of the back window, which was partially open.
Teel was found several hours later at the Microtel on Moye Boulevard after a search by both deputies and Greenville police.
Deputies say Teel was picked up yesterday for an involuntary commitment to Pitt County Memorial Hospital. Deputies say the woman was being transported to a facility in Ahoskie when the escape happened.
