From The Charlotte Observer by Meghan Cooke, June 27, 2012

Authorities say they are searching for a 19-year-old felon who cut off his ankle bracelet Wednesday.

DeShawn Franklin McManus of Charlotte is on the run after cutting off his electronic monitor on Reid Avenue, off West Boulevard near Clanton Road, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.

McManus was wearing the ankle bracelet as part of a program with the N.C. Department of Community Corrections to monitor people on probation. McManus was on probation in connection with a breaking and entering case, police said.

He’s now wanted for a felony probation violation and interfering with an electronic monitoring device.

Police described McManus’ criminal history as “extensive.” Records show McManus was convicted last year of felony breaking and entering and possession of stolen goods in Mecklenburg County. He’d previously been convicted of attempted larceny of a vehicle.

In February, he was jailed for violating his probation, according to jail records. He was released June 9.

Police said McManus is 5-foot-8 and 180 pounds.

Anyone with information about McManus’ whereabouts is asked to call 911 or CMPD’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Team at 704-336-8228.
