WILMINGTON, Delaware (WPVI) -- The Delaware Department of Correction said an inmate who walked away from the Plummer Community Corrections Center (PCCC) in Wilmington has been apprehended.
Officials say 29-year-old Keon Cornish left the PCCC on Sunday after failing to return from an approved pass. He later turned himself in to staff.
Community corrections centers, like the PCCC, are level 4 facilities for offenders who are transitioning back into the community.
These centers are not secured like level 5 prisons, officials say. Offenders are permitted to leave to go to work, look for jobs, or attend approved treatment sessions.
He was arraigned and is being held on an escape after conviction warrant in lieu of $2,500 secured bond.
