UPDATE: Hit and Run Fugitive Caught
A hit and run fugitive from Transylvania County, Scott McCombs, is in custody in Orlando, Florida.
McCombs disappeared after failing to show up for a court date in mid-December. That is what led the judge to revoke McCombs' bond on the charges.
Those charges are felony leaving the scene of an accident that killed 58-year old Jerry Morgan in Brevard more than a year ago.
Deputies and federal marshals tracked McCombs down in Orange County, Florida. Prosecutors expect the case to progress quickly once he is back in Transylvania County.
Greg Newman, Transylvania County District Attorney, "we have sought and received and order revoking his bond, so he'll be here, and we're confident we can have him here for the next court date that we established for him."
Newman says McCombs will likely have to go through an extradition hearing before he can be transported to the Transylvania County jail.
