The Halifax County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who escaped from a deputy’s vehicle this morning as he was brought in for booking after fleeing on foot from a checking station in Weldon

Sheriff Wes Tripp said Darrieck Brinson, who is in 30s and was handcuffed with his hands behind him, is not considered to be a threat to the public.

Brinson, who has a court date scheduled on July 23 in district court for driving while license revoked, came up on the  checking station and fled “out of his shoes,” Tripp said.

He was apprehended.

When Deputy Michael Bishop transported him to the jail, the deputy retrieved Brinson’s shoes, and Brinson fled from the vehicle and into the woods behind the jail.

Department of Public Safety Prison Emergency Response Team members were behind the sheriff’s office on Ferrell Lane in Halifax to aid in the search for the man.

Deputies and investigators lined up on the Highway 301 bridge on the outskirts of the county seek attempting to spot him.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the sheriff’s office at 252-583-8201 or Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.
