PORTLAND, Maine — Police have recaptured an inmate who escaped while on work release in downtown Portland Tuesday.

Law enforcement officers apprehended Larry Goodwin around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday after he had walked off from a job near the Portland waterfront that morning, according to statements from the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.

Goodwin, 41, will likely be charged with escape, said Major John Costello of the sheriff’s office.

Earlier Tuesday the Sheriff’s Office had asked for public assistance in locating Goodwin, who they say was eventually found and detained at an apartment complex in Westbrook with assistance from that city’s police.

Goodwin, a native of Seattle, Washington, was returned to the Cumberland County Jail where he is serving a nine-month sentence for cocaine possession, drunk driving and operating a vehicle after having his license suspended, the sheriff’s office said.
