Authorities search for suspect who escaped from custody at courthouse

GROESBECK, TX (KXXV) -

Central Texas law enforcement agencies are looking for a man who authorities say escaped from custody at the Limestone County Courthouse on Thursday morning.

The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office said 29-year-old Randy Hill, of Wortham, who faces three felony charges, ran from a courtroom after becoming upset about the requirements of a plea bargain before 11 a.m.

Hill who was not in the custody of the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office at the time of the escape had been free on bond up to the point he ran from the courtroom. Before he escaped, Hill had just learned he would be required to return to jail under his plea agreement, according to authorities.

Limestone County Sheriff Dennis Wilson said Hill was not armed when he left the courtroom. However, he is considered dangerous. Hill was recently released from a Texas prison where he was serving a sentence for an earlier crime.

He is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs nearly 170 pounds. His head is shaved with a small patch of hair in a mohawk fashion, according to the description provided by authorities. 

He was last seen wearing a white zipper jacket with a black t-shirt, black pants and tennis shoes. The black t-shirt he was wearing had a white American flag on the back. He is believed to be on foot.
