An inmate who police say walked away from a job site in Portland on Monday has turned himself in.

Brandon Fletcher, 21, of Hollis was working at a job site on Washington Avenue when a supervisor gave him permission to go to a nearby Cumberland Farms convenience store, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.

Fletcher never returned to the job site, and a search began for the missing inmate, the sheriff’s office said.

Fletcher, who was incarcerated for probation revocation, was assigned to work release at the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Community Corrections Center.

The sheriff’s office said Fletcher turned himself in to detectives on Tuesday and was taken to the Cumberland County Jail.

The sheriff’s office will be pursuing criminal charges.
