CAROLINE COUNTY, Va. -- Police are searching for a man who escaped from a Caroline County ICE detention facility at noon Wednesday.

Fangamou is a citizen of Guinea and entered ICE custody on May 9 after being released on criminal misdemeanor charges in Prince William County. A check of Fangamou's record shows charges for marijuana possession and several driving violations.
