HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The nineteen-year-old wanted for escape by the Horry County Sheriff's Office has been captured, and had his day in court.
Ancel Ramon Harris was wanted for escape after cutting off an ankle bracelet in August.
Authorities say Harris fled to New York, but was found and extradited back to South Carolina to face charges.
Before his escape, Harris was charged with some serious crimes including attempted murder, carjacking and second degree battery.
On Tuesday, Oct. 15 he pleaded guilty to attempted murder and carjacking. He was sentenced to serve 15 years in prison for each charge, and those sentences will run concurrently.
Since his escape, the Home Detention Center has upgraded its software system and deputies hope it will help prevent things like escape from happening. The sheriff's office was previously using Veritrax and said it was helpful, but the system upgrade is expected to provide more detailed mapping, faster response times, and ability with other electronic devices.
"We have iPads in our cars so I think it will make it to where we can enter them into the GPS program from our iPads," says Deputy Jennifer Dashong who has been working with suspects in the program for five years.
There are just under 100 people on the home monitoring system, and they are tracked through the GPS device worn around their ankles. Deputies can get up to the minute information about suspects, and they say they like the program for a number of reasons. It cost nothing for taxpayers, and it allows suspects to continue going to school or handle other responsibilities.
