Delaware Department of Correction searching for missing offender

Jason L. Faulkner, 30, of Georgetown

Authorities in Georgetown say they are searching for an inmate, who ran while performing community service.

The Sussex County Correctional Center, in Georgetown, says that 30-year-old Jason Faulkner, has failed to return after performing community service at Georgetown Little League.

Faulkner is described by law enforcement as a male, standing 5’06”, weighing 170 pounds, with brown hair, and blue eyes. Her last known address is reported as being in Georgetown, Delaware.

Officials say that Faulkner’s location is unknown, and unauthorized at this time, so a warrant for escape and conviction has been issued. According to the report, Faulkner’s current offense is violation of probation for receiving stolen property greater than 15, and terroristic threatening.

It is important to keep in mind that Community Corrections Centers are Level 4 facilities, where the Department of Correction manages offenders who are transitioning back into the community. So, these centers are not secured like Level 5 prisons, meaning offenders are permitted to the leave the facility to go to work, seek jobs or attend approved treatment sessions.

Officials ask that anyone with information on this offender should call 1-800-542-9524 or call your local police.
