OSSIPEE, New Hampshire (NEWS CENTER) -- David Glenn Hobson was led into the Ossipee District Court wearing shackles to be arraigned on a felony charge of escape.
Hobson remained silent throughout the brief proceeding on Wednesday, nodding his head to answer questions posed to him by a judge. He did not have to enter a plea and was ordered held in lieu of $500,000 cash bail.
The thirty-four year old Alfred, Maine man escaped from the Carroll County House of Corrections by scaling a razor-wire topped fence. Police say Hobson fled into the woods and later stole an SUV which was recovered in an area near where many members of his family live.
Hobson eluded police for five days, despite their use of search teams with tracking dogs on the ground and aircraft equipped with thermal imaging units hovering overhead.
