An inmate in the Nebraska state corrections system serving time on Adams County convictions has been reported missing after walking away from the Lincoln facility where he is housed, the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services announced this morning.
Richard Reynolds left the Community Corrections Center-Lincoln just before 11 p.m. Wednesday after removing the electronic monitoring device on his ankle, the state agency said in a news release.
Reynolds is described as a 35-year-old white man, 5 feet, 11 inches tall, who weighs 205 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. He started serving his sentence on Dec. 28, 2017.
Reynolds is serving a six- to 10-year sentence for charges out of Adams County. He was convicted on charges of third-degree domestic assault, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony, and attempted third-degree assault of a peace officer or Department of Correctional Services employee. His tentative release date is listed as June 16, 2022, and his parole eligibility date is listed as July 25, 2020.
The Community Corrections Center-Lincoln is one of two community custody facilities operated by the Department of Correctional Services. Community custody is the lowest custody level and the least restrictive facility. Inmates are allowed to work, attend school and religious services with prior approval and without direct supervision.
Anyone with knowledge of Reynolds’ whereabouts is asked to contact local authorities or the Nebraska State Patrol.
