ABINGDON, Va.- Washington County authorities have captured a fugitive who fled from custody at the courthouse a day earlier.
Byron Ashbrook of the sheriff's office says 21-year-old Danny Allen Deloach was pulled over in a stolen vehicle in the county on Thursday.
Deloach had appeared at the Washington County courthouse on larceny charges Wednesday. Deloach escaped as a Southwest Virginia Regional Jail office escorted him from the courthouse.
Ashbrook says Deloach has been returned to the regional jail without bond.
