AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in eastern Georgia are searching for a murder suspect they say walked free after using an alias when he was recently arrested on an unrelated charge.

News outlets report Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Allan Rollins says Terrance Brown was arrested Oct. 30 for disorderly conduct and identified himself as Alphonso Bray while being booked into the county jail.

Brown posted bond and Rollins says upon exiting the jail Oct. 31, Brown was fingerprinted and the scan identified him as the murder suspect. But booking officers didn’t notice the discrepancy.

Brown was identified by Bray’s family after his photograph appeared in a local newspaper.

Rollins says the sheriff’s office has initiated a review of procedures and an internal investigation into the release.

Brown is wanted in Burke County on a murder charge.
