CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – A North Carolina Man who was arrested for shoplifting briefly escaped from J. Reuben Long Detention Center Monday morning after jumping over the judge's bench and running out an unsecured door, jail officials confirmed.

At about 11:19 a.m., during the bond court appearance for 38-year-old Darren Love, from Winston Salem, NC, Love was able to jump over the judge's bench and escape out a door leading to the judge's chamber, according to Security Captain Kwame Livingston at J. Reuben Long.
