Ponca City Now - December 7, 2018 3:19 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY – Paul Hartsell Jr. walked away from a Ponca City halfway house on Sunday, stealing a van during his getaway.

Hartsell, who walked away from Bridgeway Inc. at 620 W. Grand, is described as white, 5-feet 6-inches tall, weighing about 154 pounds, green eyes and brown hair.

Hartsell was serving multiple Oklahoma County sentences for domestic assault and battery, and second-degree burglary when he walked away.

He will likely face additional time for walking away and stealing the van, which the halfway house owned.

The van is a white 2009 Ford E350 with a tag of IJN-414. It has “No. 39” stickers on multiple locations on its body, as well as dents on its passenger side door.
