DELRAY BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Craige Russell Hill Jr., a 78 year old Delray Beach man, is jailed Friday morning following his arrest by Boynton Beach Police.

Hill is facing the rarely seen charge of “harboring — conceal, aid escaped prisoner.”

It was not immediately clear who Hill was allegedly hiding, how the prisoner ended up in Hill’s home, or what the escaped prison is accused of doing that led to his initial arrest.

The affidavit of probable cause was still being processed early Friday. Hill was arrest and jailed late Thursday.

Hill lives in the 3800 block of Lone Pine Road in Delray Beach. Check back for updates later on Friday.
