May 27th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

A Garrett County inmate who walked away from a work detail Friday afternoon was captured several hours later. The Cumberland Times News reports Ryan Christopher White, 22, was working with an inmate crew cutting grass on Norris Welch Road when he disappeared just after noon, the Garrett County Sheriff’s Office said.

A sheriff's office spokesman said White was flushed out of a wooded area on Dilly Road, near the area where he originally disappeared. He was apprehended around 3:30 p.m.

The incident had prompted Garrett County Public Schools to place facilities in the southern part of the county lockdown.

According to court records, White has been jailed since April on a second-degree assault conviction.
