PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — Authorities in West Virginia are searching for a jail inmate who removed his leg monitor while out on a pass.
A Wood County magistrate issued a felony arrest warrant Wednesday after Jeremy Dean Johnson failed to return to the Parkersburg Correctional Center, the Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation said in a news release.
Johnson, 28, was serving a 20- to 40-year sentence for breaking and entering, grand larceny and burglary.
The statement described Johnson as 5-foot-4 and weighing 120 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He has tattoos on his left forearm and his right hand.
