Work Release Center Walkaway Caught
The escaped inmate from the work release facility in Burlington has been captured.
31-year-old Eric Shaffer had been on the run for close to a month until Des Moines County Sheriff’s deputies were able to track him down. Shaffer was found at a home in the 1300 block of South Washington Road yesterday afternoon (thursday).
Shaffer had been serving time for assault and weapons charges, and walked away from the facility last month.
