October 10, 2008

A work release inmate from the Maryland Correctional Training Center ran away from his work-release job Friday morning, but later was captured and returned to MCTC, according to Maryland State Police press release.

James William Young, 34, was assigned to a work detail at the County Commuter bus station at West Washington Street and Devonshire Road, police said.

Young fled from his job about 10:30 a.m. when a Division of Correction employee confronted him about a conversation he had with a woman in a car, police said.

Young was found at an address in the West End of Hagerstown following a search involving officers with the Maryland State Police, Hagerstown Police Department and Washington County Sheriff's Department, police said. Young was taken into custody after a brief struggle with officers and later returned to MCTC, police said.
