SNOW HILL, Md.- A police manhunt in the Snow Hill area is over as Delaware pre-release escapee Jesse Dudley turned himself in to police in Worcester County on Monday night, according to Snow Hill Police Chief Kirk Daugherty.
 
Snow Hill and Pocomoke City public schools, along with Chapel Special School, Worcester Technical High School and the Worcester County Board of Ed Central Office, were all placed on a precautionary lockdown, according to county officials.
 
Snow Hill police had been looking for the 24-year-old Dudley since Monday morning. According to the Delaware Department of Corrections, Dudley has been wanted since early March after he failed to return from an authorized pass issued by the Sussex Community Corrections Center in Georgetown.
 
The SCCC is where the DOC manages offenders who are transitioning back into the facility. According to the DOC, Dudley was in the SCCC for violation of probation stemming from an original charge of third-degree burglary. The DOC alerted law enforcement authorities in Worcester County that Dudley may be in the Snow Hill area.
 
According to Lt. Ed Schreier of the Worcester County Sheriff's Office, on Monday morning,  police in Snow Hill attempted to locate Dudley on a warrant from Delaware. Schreier said that when Dudley was approached, he fled into a wooded area located near some schools. This prompted the lockdown of area schools, Schreier explained.
