HOUSTON — Most escapees are caught within hours. Not Efrain Gutierrez.

The Harris County inmate bolted from a downtown Houston courtroom on Feb. 28 and he's still on the run.

Gutierrez, 38, was arrested last July for allegedly stealing 612 pairs of panties from Victoria's Secret. The merchandise was worth about $10,000.

Along with felony theft, Gutierrez is charged with escape, evading arrest and possession of a controlled substance.

He's Hispanic, approximately 5'8, 190 lbs. with brown eyes, short black hair and tattoos covering his chest and arms.

If you see him, please call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS (8477) or post tips at www.crime-stoppers.org. You could be eligible for a reward up to $5,000.
