FEDERALSBURG, Md.- Maryland State Police say an inmate who walked away from a work release program in Caroline County is back in custody.
Police said 32-year-old Jeremiah Lee Windon, an Eastern Pre-Release Unit inmate, had work detail on a farm near Federalsburg on late Tuesday morning and walked away, even though he was under the supervision of officers.
Authorities conducted a ground and air search for Windon, which ended at around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, when he was located in a farm field off of Possum Hill Road in Caroline County. He was taken into custody and charged with first-degree escape, with additional charges pending. In addition, a retake warrant has been issued and will be served on Windon.
