      The search for an escaped criminal in Fauquier County continues Tuesday morning, more than a day after the 40-year-old with a "violent criminal history" eluded authorities.

      Fauquier County Sheriff's officials say that LaFonzo French continues to be on the run after he got away from deputies Monday morning. According to Fauquier Now, French was last seen in the woods in his boxer shorts near Beach and Meetze roads in Warrenton.

      French was arrested at his home on multiple drug charges, including distribution of cocaine, possession and intent to distribute. Fauquier Now says that during the process of his arrest, an "incident" occurred which allowed the suspect to flee.

      Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's office at (540) 347-3300.
