Franklin Co. Escaped Prisoner Still On Run
By MJ Kneiser, WLHR Radio, Lavonia
Late Friday morning, 20-year-old Keibron Brock managed to climb over the wall and razor wire of the Franklin County Detention Center in Carnesville and disappear.
Franklin County authorities, along with canine units from the Department of Natural Resources and other local law enforcement agencies, searched a wooded area near the detention center Friday for several hours without success.
Franklin County Sheriff Stevie Thomas said it is believed Brock allegedly stole a 2006 gray Cadillac CTS from a home near the jail after his escape. Thomas said the vehicle was found Friday night abandoned in Bowersville.
According to Thomas, lookouts have been put out for Brock in Georgia and South Carolina.
Authorities are also asking for the public’s help to locate Brock.
He is described as a light-skinned black male, 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing orange jail shorts and a white t-shirt.
Brock was in the detention center awaiting trial on several charges, including burglary, armed robbery, and aggravated assault.
Brock is considered dangerous. If you see him, Thomas says to not approach him, but call 911 or the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office at 706-384-2525. You do not have to give your name.
