Inmate Escapes Work Detail

Local authorities are searching for an inmate they say made a getaway away from the Haralson County maintenance barn on Macedonia Church Road Thursday afternoon.
“They had sent him out back with some tools to take some straps off of a dump truck… and they went to check and he was gone,” Haralson County Jail Administrator Roger Blue told WLBB Radio Thursday. “He was either picked up or walked away from there.”
Blue says deputies are contacting addresses connected with 34-year old Steven Golden, hoping to bring him into custody as soon as possible.
Blue says Golden is not thought to be violent or a “serious risk” to public safety.
He was arrested last year and charged with 2 counts felony theft by taking, second degree criminal damage to property, theft by receiving stolen property, criminal trespass, burglary and possession of marijuana.
Anyone with info on his whereabouts should contact the Haralson County Sheriff’s Office or call 911.
