Baltimore police arrested a man last night wanted in a domestic violence-related incident. However, before they could him book and jail him, he managed to work his way out of his handcuffs and has now been on the lam for nearly 17 hours.
Police say Vernon Goode, 41, was taken into custody, cuffed and brought to the Central District on Baltimore Street right downtown. Unfortunately, while he was there, he “worked his way out” of the bracelets and escaped on foot at around 5:15 p.m., police say.
Goode is about 5’10” tall and weighs around 215 pounds. He was wearing a short-sleeved burgundy shirt and dark jeans and was holding a black book bag with braided stitching when he was last seen.
An important note: His haircut is very much different than it appears in the above photo. He now has neck-length dreadlocks, rather than short-ish hair. That photo is from 2007, according to a police spokesperson, though it’s still a good reference for his facial features.
Goode lives on N. Gilmore Street in the Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood. If you see him anywhere, let police know by calling 911.
