Red Boiling Springs Police Chief James Killmon said 55-year-old Constance “Connie” Porter was wanted on multiple felonies which include outstanding warrants and new felony drug charges. 

The Macon County Sheriff’s Office said Porter was out on bond for similar charges that were filed a month ago.

As officials searched the property, Porter was reportedly able to escape and fled the area on foot. 

Macon County Sheriff Joseph Wilburn said Porter was able to escape custody after she reached into an open window and opened the car door from the outside. The sheriff said the mistake was human error.

“We’re human and we make mistakes, the best thing is the ability to understand our mistakes and not dwell on it and do the next best thing, which is to actively pursue her and get her back into custody,” said Wilburn.

Inside the home, officers found 17 ounces of meth, mushrooms, marijuana and $2,000 in cash.

Officials said the search for Porter lasted for three hours. Porter was found walking on Witcher Hollow Road, where she taken into custody.

No other information was immediately released.
