SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Police are on the lookout for an inmate who allegedly walked away from his pre-release program; three days before his sentence was supposed to end.
Stephen O’Neil from the Hampden County Sheriff’s Office told 22News that they are searching for 38 year-old Jason Moran.
According to O’Neil, Moran was dropped-off Monday morning at the bus station so that he could go to a worksite. He did not show up at the worksite, however.
Moran is described as a dark-skinned man, about 6’2” tall and weighing about 220 pounds. He is bald and has brown eyes and tattoos on his right arm. He was wearing an all-black outfit, consisting of a jacket, pants, shoes, and gloves.
If you have any information, you are asked to call Springfield Police.
“Obviously this person was classified to our minimum security, pre-release center because he was not seen as a danger in the community,” O’Neil said. “However, when an individual absconds from a correctional supervision situation it is always a matter of caution.”
The Sheriff’s Department’s pre-release center is designed to help inmates get re-adjusted to life on the outside.
