UPDATE: Juvenile Who Escaped From Carteret County Courthouse Back In Custody

A juvenile who escaped from the Carteret County courthouse Wednesday night is back in custody.

The Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention says the escape happened around 11:30 p.m. just after the juvenile had been committed by a judge.

The escapee, identified as "James W," was apprehended Thursday night around 8:15 pm on Pollock Street in Beaufort.

Deputies say they got an anonymous call he was at a residence on Pollock Street.

The juvenile will face an additional misdemeanor criminal charge of Resist, Obstruct, and Delaying an officer in the performance of their duty for his actions in the courtroom.

    Just like insurance companies....you can have a tree blown down in a hurricane, yet if it stops short of hitting your house (perched perilously just above the roof) they won't do squat about it. Once it damages your house, they'll pay. The cost of fixing the house would be MUCH higher than removing the tree before it falls....go figure.

    Funny when I had two juveniles, and one who was 19 BREAK into my house once and then tried again a 2nd time, I was told there was nothing they could do about it cause the kid was under 16 !! The other one was at least 19 with a list as long as your arm and STILL nothing was done to either one! With finger & foot prints all around. The school age kids on the bus KNEW it was going to happen and who was doing it on that very day, and the police were told who to talk to and who did it and STILL nothing. I also had my phone tapped and was told by the phone company I can not find out who it was without a COURT ORDER! Now I say who has the rights and who does not?? Parents were manufactuing drugs out of the house with very small children and all I was told was " WE are watching them" The person who I talked to about this was the head honcho in Cart. I was also told that IF the juvenile HURT someone then something could be done about it. When asked about juvenile detention, NO RESPONSE !!!!

    What more info. do you need? It's a young trouble maker that was in court this morning. If he had been wearing a prison jumpsuit and a ball and chain we would have no problem finding him.

    Funny, help us catch this juvenile. We can't give you any real information, like his name or a mug shot, because he is a juvenile, but if you see him call us. Thanks

    Knowing Carteret County, they probably spent 5 minutes looking for him then gave up. LOL
