PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say an inmate was arrested after walking away from a Multnomah County work crew in downtown Portland.
The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office says Joshua Sean Purdue was arrested Sunday morning without incident and taken to the Multnomah County Detention Center on a probation violation.
Additional charges may be filed once the investigation into his escape from custody is complete.
Authorities say Purdue left the crew Saturday afternoon.
The sheriff’s office says Purdue was serving a 90-day sentence for a burglary conviction and was set to be released in early July.
