CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities are looking for a convicted North Carolina felon they say cut off his electronic monitoring device a day after being released on bond.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say 41-year-old Lee Anthony Funderburk 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.
As part of that release, Funderburk was required to wear an electronic monitor and adhere to a curfew. Police say 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.
