ABINGDON, Va. - Washington County authorities have captured a fugitive who fled from custody at the courthouse a day earlier.

Byron Ashbrook of the sheriff's office says 21-year-old Danny Allen Deloach was pulled over in a stolen vehicle in the county on Thursday.

The Bristol Herald Courier ( http://bit.ly/O84j8W) reports Deloach had appeared at the Washington County courthouse on larceny charges Wednesday. Deloach escaped as a Southwest Virginia Regional Jail office escorted him from the courthouse.

Ashbrook says Deloach has been returned to the regional jail without bond.
