NDCS: Inmate missing from Lincoln facility since January back in custody
Corrections officials say an inmate who escaped from a Lincoln correctional facility nine months ago is back in custody.
The inmate, Brandon Jones, left the Community Corrections Center-Lincoln in January and failed to return, officials said. He was arrested by Bellevue police Wednesday night.
NDCS said Jones is serving three to 11-years for charges out of Douglas County including terroristic threats and assault. His sentence began on November 16, 2015. He has a tentative release date of April 18, 2020. Jones now faces charges out of Sarpy County.
CCC-L is one of two community custody facilities operated by NDCS. Community custody is the lowest custody level and the least restrictive facility. Inmates are allowed to participate in work opportunities, attend school and religious services with prior approval and without direct supervision.
