Mistaken release

Forsyth County authorities have recaptured a Kernersville man mistakenly released from the county jail.

Court records show Progress Always Lloyd was released by jail officials after he pleaded guilty Monday to three counts of armed robbery and three counts of first-degree burglary. He also pleaded guilty to two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury.

Authorities aren't releasing details about how Lloyd was caught. A Superior Court judge postponed sentencing Lloyd until he testified against co-defendants in his case. Lloyd was ordered held at the jail until that time. A prayer for judgment was issued and Lloyd was set free.
