Listen to 911 calls that resulted in capture of escaped convict in Davidson County
DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — A convict who escaped from a North Carolina prison over the weekend is now behind bars at the Davidson County Jail.
Listen below to 911 calls that resulted in his capture.
One of the callers tells the 911 operator that a person seen walking on Old (Highway) 52 “looks just like someone that was on FOX8,” referring to the mug shot the TV station aired and posted online of 29-year-old Antonio McNeil.
Another caller said she had just left the Kangaroo store on Old Highway 52 and thought she has seen the suspect heading toward Forsyth County.
McNeil climbed a fence and escaped the Brown Creek Correctional Institution in Polkton, located between Fayetteville and Charlotte, over the weekend.
He was discovered missing shortly after midnight Saturday, according to authorities.
McNeil was serving a 14-year sentence for second-degree murder and was scheduled for release in 2018.
A correctional officer at the prison faces multiple charges in connection to the convict’s escape.
Kendra Lynette Miller, 33, allegedly gave the escaped inmate a ride after he climbed the fence.
Miller faces charges of sex with an inmate, providing an electronic device to an inmate, harboring a fugitive and aiding and abetting a fugitive.
Miller has been a food service officer at the facility where McNeil escaped since December 2014. She’s been jailed under a $500,000 bond.
McNeil was placed in the Davidson County Jail under a $1 million secured bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for July 7 in Anson County.
McNeil has been turned over to the N.C. Department of Correction and is scheduled to be taken to Central Prison in Raleigh.
