BROOKSTON, Ind. (WLFI) – Authorities in White County are looking for a man they say tore off his home detention bracelet and fled from an officer.

It happened around 12:30 p.m. Sunday in Brookston at the home of 29-year-old Emmanuel Sanchez.

A home detention officer was doing a routine check. According to the director of community corrections, that’s when Sanchez pulled off the bracelet and took off.

Sanchez is facing charges related to an OWI and being a habitual traffic offender out of Tippecanoe County. He was a courtesy transfer and was being monitored by White County Community Corrections.

As of 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sanchez has not been located.
