Inmate transported from Bertie Correctional mistakenly released
MECKLENBURG COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the mistaken release of an inmate transported from Bertie Correctional to the sheriff’s jurisdiction last month.
Quay Davis was moved from the Bertie prison to the Mecklenburg County Detention Center – Central (MCDCC) on April 12 on a writ hold and immediately appeared in court.
Davis was served with a warrant from Pasquotank County for possession of weapon by a prisoner and received a $75,000 secured bond.
When Davis’ court information was entered incorrectly, without the writ hold added, he was wrongly released on May 9 around 11:00 a.m. due to the possession of weapon charge being voluntarily dismissed.
MCSO was notified about the error on May 13.
The investigation is ongoing.
