Escape Suspect Waived Preliminary Hearing

LEWISTOWN (WEEK)-- An escape suspect from Fulton County waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday and is now due back in court after Thanksgiving.

36 year-old Zachary Hart is one of four men accused of escape from the Fulton County jail in early July, sparking a manhunt that lasted more than three days.

Hart was found walking between Cuba and Canton late morning on Sunday July 11, soon after police got a tip from someone who told them Hart had asked for a ride.

In addition to escape, Hart has a long list of allegations still pending against him, including burglary, resisting arrest, meth possession, home invasion, domestic battery and felon in possession of a gun.

His court date November 30 will include scheduling for all the above charges.
