Guard at Maine jail releases wrong inmate

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — Maine police are searching for an inmate who was mistakenly released from the Cumberland County Jail in Portland.

Police say 23-year-old Ahmed Ismail was mistaken Wednesday night for another inmate who had been bailed out. The correct inmate was released as well.

Capt. Steve Butts said he remained missing Thursday morning.

Ismail was arrested in July. He was being held on two counts of robbery and two counts of reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon.
