Daniel Dawayne Hall, 31, of Eastsound was charged with escape in the first degree in San Juan County Superior Court on Aug. 22. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
According to the probable cause statement, on July 18, it was discovered that Hall had allegedly removed a GPS ankle monitor that was placed on him on July 16 as part of his in-custody work crew program. The device was located on an embankment in the 1100 block of Dolphin Bay Road, the statement said.
Hall was allowed to serve on a work crew in place of spending two months in jail for a previous conviction for which he pleaded guilty on July 16 for possession of stolen property in the second degree and possession of a controlled substance.
On May 5, a deputy reported having found Hall in a house that was supposed to be vacant, according to the land owner, but appeared to have people living in it. According to the probable cause statement, a backpack was found near Hall containing his identification; stolen bank cards, one from a business that had been recently burglarized; two scales; two hypodermic needles; a spoon; and Q-tips.
Hall also has warrants out for his arrest in Skagit County. He has a previous conviction for solicitation of a controlled substance without a prescription.
