Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services officials say an Essex man violated his home detention Wednesday when he took off his monitoring device and left his residence.

Officials say Delonte Mack, 24, left his residence in the 1400 block of Winter Park Circle about 2 p.m., violating his detention from a theft case.

Authorities searched for Mack around his home but could not find him, and officials said he remained at large as of Thursday evening. Police are asking that anyone with information about Mack call 911.
