Manhunt: Deputies looking for man who fled Washington County Justice Center

Staff Report • Aug 23, 2013 at 4:27 PM

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is still looking for a man who they say fled from the Justice Center on Thursday after he realized officers were going to arrest him on an outstanding warrant.

Jason Strode, 27, 4202 Ranch Road, had an outstanding warrant for failure to report to jail to serve 15 days on an evading arrest case.

Strode was at the Justice Center in Jonesborough on an unrelated matter. When officers began to approach him, Strode took off, police said. Officers searched areas up and down Boones Creek Road because someone was reportedly on the way from Kingsport to pick him up.

Strode was never found and remains on the loose.

Anyone with information about Strode or his whereabouts can call the sheriff’s office at 788-1414.
