Inmate escapes Delaware corrections center on Christmas Day

Authorities in Delaware are searching for an inmate who escaped a corrections center on Christmas Day.

The Department of Correction announced Wednesday that 31-year-old David Succarote went over the perimeter fence at the Plummer Community Corrections Center in Wilmington on Tuesday and fled. Officials say they've issued a warrant for escape after conviction.

Officials say the center manages inmates transitioning back into the community and inmates can go to work, seek jobs or attend approved treatment sessions.

Officials describe Succarote as a white man with green eyes and brown hair with tattoos on his arms and chest. He's about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighs about 170 pounds. Officials say he was serving time for a probation violation and due to be released next summer.
