Blades man fails to return to DOC

Mightys Gibbs

GEORGETOWN — A 26-year-old Blades man was sought after failing to return to Sussex Community Corrections Center from an approved work pass, the Delaware Department of Correction said Thursday.

Mightys Gibbs’ whereabouts were unknown and unauthorized at this time, the DOC said. A warrant for escape after conviction was issued.

Gibbs was described as a 6-foot, 190-pound black male with brown eyes and black hair, and tattoos on his left arm, left forearm, left wrist, left hand, right forearm, right writs, right hand, chest, back and neck. His original offense was theft greater than $1,500.

The DOC asked anyone with information to call (800) 542-9524 or their local police department.

Community Corrections Centers are Level 4 facilities where the DOC manages offenders who are transitioning back into the community. These centers are not secured like Level 5 prisons, as offenders are permitted to the leave the facility to go to work, seek jobs, or attend approved treatment sessions.
