Erie County Sheriff Deputies are on the look out for a prisoner who escaped from custody following a court date.

29-year-old Thomas Walsh of Buffalo was awaiting transport at the Buffalo City Court lockup following his arraignment when he managed to slip away.

Walsh is wanted for Petit Larceny, Criminal Possession of Stolen Property and a list of others charges.

Authorities say Walsh is considered to be dangerous and should be avoided.
