FARMINGTON, Maine — Justin Ross, who escaped from a work-release program earlier this week, was captured Thursday afternoon.
Department of Corrections spokeswoman Judy Plummer said in a news release that the suspect was apprehended at 3:30 p.m. thanks to an effort from state police, the Department of Corrections and local law enforcement.
Ross, 35, of Farmington had been serving a sentence for domestic violence assault at the Central Maine Pre-Release Center in Hallowell.
That facility houses prisoners with 15 months or less on their sentences. Ross was due to be released on Oct. 29.
Ross had escaped from a work-release site in Leeds on Tuesday.
