Escaped inmate captured

WARREN-An escaped inmate is back in custody after being on the run for only a few hours.

Authorities say 26 year old Jacob Carney of Surry was taking part in a supervised work detail at a farm close to the Bolduc Correctional Facility in Warren.

The crew was returned to the prison around 3:30, but it wasn't until about an hour later when they noticed Carney wasn't with them.

Police began looking for him and found him around 9:00 last night about 9-miles away at business in Rockland.

They're not sure how he got there or how his escape was undetected for so long.

Carney was serving a sentence for theft charges.

He has since been moved to the more secure Maine State Prison and is likely to face escape charges which could add several years to his sentence.

Craig Colson became news director and anchor at WVII ABC 7 and WFVX Fox Bangor in December of 2012. He began his career in broadcasting in 1985 while working as a news photographer at another Bangor television station. Craig worked his way up through the ranks and became the main anchor for the nightly newscasts before leaving in 2009. At that point, he became news director for four local radio stations and delivered the morning news before taking on his current position.

Craig grew up in a "news family" and followed in the footsteps of his father who was also a news director and anchor. His brother is also a news photographer at a Boston television station.

Craig's career has brought him all over-reporting from everywhere from Washington D.C. to Red Square in Moscow, Russia. When he isn't reporting the news, Craig can be found taking on new adventures with his two daughters or exploring the coast of Maine in his kayak. His other passion is making furniture in his shop or just about anything involving the outdoors.
