SCCC searching for missing offender

Anthony Zack, 22, of Laurel

Authorities in Georgetown say they are searching for an inmate, who ran away from working on a road crew.

The Sussex County Correctional Center, in Georgetown, says that 22-year-old Anthony Zack, was working around 9:05AM on Tuesday with the Road Crew that was at Bethel Community House on Main Street, in Bethel, Delaware.

According to the release, Zack escaped by intentionally running away from the Road Crew through a wooded area. All attempts to contact him have failed.

Zack is described by law enforcement as a male, standing 5’06”, weighing 140 pounds, with brown hair, brown facial hair, blue eyes, and has tattoos on his upper right arm. His last known address is reported as being in Laurel, Delaware.

Officials say that Zack’s location is unknown, and unauthorized at this time, so a warrant for escape and conviction has been issued. According to the report, Zack’s current offense is violation of probation for possession of drug paraphernalia.

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.
