He was out on bond already when he allegedly was arrested for possession of drugs, but before deputies could book him, 17-year-old Zachariah Bostic managed to escape.

"In February of 2018, two days after Bostic was released on bond for a felony charge, a Bexar County Sheriff's deputy conducted a traffic stop in west Bexar County for a traffic violation," Johnny Garcia with the Bexar County Sheriff's Office said.

As the deputy detained the driver, he noticed that Bostic slowly started attempting to exit out of the vehicle by opening the passenger side door despite the deputy requesting him to stay inside. After he was cuffed, the deputy discovered that Bostic had three bags of cocaine, narcotic pills, and marijuana in the pockets of his jacket and pants.

When Bostic was put in a squad car, the deputy noticed that the door had not properly closed and went to close it. That's when Bostic made a run for it in handcuffs .

Bostic stands at about 5 feet 8 inches and weighs about 145 pounds.

If you have more information on his whereabouts, you are asked to call the Lonestar Fugitive Task Force at 210-657-8500.
