NC man wanted after cutting off electronic anklet
Lee Anthony Funderburk, 41, of Charlotte (Mecklenburg Co. Jail)
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Authorities are looking for a convicted North Carolina felon they say cut off his electronic monitoring device a day after being released on bond.
Lee Anthony Funderburk, 41, of Charlotte, was released from jail on Friday after posting a $36,000 bond for charges including larceny, resisting an officer and possession of a gun by a felon, police said.
Funderburk was required to wear an electronic monitor and adhere to a curfew as part of the release. Police said Funderburk cut off his court-ordered anklet on Saturday and fled.
Records show Funderburk was released from state prison in May after serving about two years for identity fraud and larceny. Authorities say he was last seen in west Charlotte.
