A convicted felon who was briefly on the run this weekend after cutting off his ankle bracelet is back in jail Sunday, police said.
Lee Anthony Funderburk, a 41-year-old who police say has an "extensive" criminal history in Mecklenburg County, was arrested Sunday in Charlotte.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said he'd cut off his electronic monitor Saturday -- only a day after he was released from Mecklenburg jail.
Records show Funderburk was jailed Wednesday on charges of larceny, assault by pointing a gun, possession of a gun by a felon, resisting an officer and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was released Friday after posting his $36,000 bond, according to jail records.
As part of his release, he was ordered to wear an electronic monitor and adhere to a curfew, police said. But on Saturday, Funderburk cut off the monitor and fled.
Now, he'll face charges of interfering with an electronic monitoring device.
Funderburk has previously been convicted of breaking and entering, and he was most recently released from state prison in May after serving about two years for identify fraud and larceny, records show.
Police said Funderburk was the 24th person monitored by CMPD to cut off his monitor this year. Each has been recaptured.
