Snow Hill and Pocomoke Area Schools on Precautionary Lockdown Posted: Apr 22, 2013 10:56 AM EDT Updated: Apr 22, 2013 12:02 PM EDT   Jessey Dudley SNOW HILL, Md.- A police manhunt in the Snow Hill area has prompted the lockdown of several area schools as a precautionary measure.   Snow Hill and Pocomoke City public schools, along with Chapel Special School, Worcester Technical High School and the Worcester County Board of Ed Central Office, are all on a precautionary lockdown, according to county officials.   Snow Hill police said they are looking for 24-year-old Jessey Dudley. According to the Delaware Department of Corrections, Dudley has been wanted since early March after he failed to return from an authorized pass issued by the Sussex Community Corrections Center in Georgetown.   The SCCC is where the DOC manages offenders who are transitioning back into the facility. According to the DOC, Dudley was in the SCCC for violation of probation stemming from an original charge of third-degree burglary.   Dudley is described as a white male, 5-foot-9, 175 pounds, with brown eyes, black hair, a mustache with goatee and pierced ears.   Anyone with information about Dudley's whereabouts is asked to call the Snow Hill Police Department at (410) 632-2447 or the Delaware DOC at (800) 542-9524.

UPDATE: Delaware Escapee Turns Himself In Posted: Apr 22, 2013 10:37 AM EDT Updated: Apr 22, 2013 11:52 PM EDT By Gabriella Cole - email     SNOW HILL, Md. - The escaped inmate at the center of a rigorous search on Monday, has turned himself in.
The search for 23-year-old Jessey Dudley resulted in the precautionary lockdown of several schools in Worcester County on Monday. In the afternoon, police lifted the lockdowns after investigators made sure the area was safe, and gave the all clear.
WMDT followed officers' every move, for hours during the man-hunt, hoping to help track down the wanted suspect.
The suspect's photo was flashed all over parts of Worcester County Monday, alerting residents, schools even nursing homes that a wanted Delaware man may be in the area. Initial reports came through that Dudley was thought to be armed and dangerous. On March 11th, he was given a one-day pass to leave the Sussex Community Corrections Center, but never returned.
At 8:30 a.m., all Snow Hill schools were placed on lockdown. A short time later, Dudley was spotted near Snow Hill High at the Pleasant Manor Apartment complex.
"He opened the back door over here and I asked him his name and he said Jessey. I grabbed him and said you're under arrest, and he pulled away from me and fled out the front door," said Snow Hill Police Chief Kirk Daugherty.
WMDT questioned the chief about the incident saying "Was there a struggle? Did he try to fight you off." The chief responded saying "no he just pulled away from me."
Just before noon, officers began searching nearby homes for Dudley.
"They were in there with all their guns. It kind of scared me a little bit that's all I know," said a Snow Hill resident.
A half an hour passed, and Pocomoke schools were put on high alert. Then, an apparent tip sent the Worcester County Sheriff's dogs back inside the same home sniffing for clues. Minutes later, Dudley's mom confronted officers, frantically begging them not to shoot her son.
"He is not dangerous whatsoever. He doesn't like guns somebody said he had one which is not true. He had come up here to help me move and got scared that's it," said Cherry Dudley.
At 1:30 p.m. the lockdowns were lifted, and the suspect was no longer believed to be dangerous, but at that time he was still on the run.
The center he walked away from is not a secured prison, but mostly a facility where offenders are often given access to leave for work or treatment sessions.
