Inmate slips out of detention center, quickly located
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Officials say an inmate who hopped out of his second-floor window at the Cumberland County Community Corrections Center is back in custody.
The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department said 44-year-old Joseph Buzzell, of Windham, was seen leaving the corrections facility in a woman’s car Saturday night. He was located in Biddeford at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday and was returned to the jail.
Officials say Buzzell was due to be released in December after serving a sentence for a probation violation following a conviction for robbery and OUI.
An investigation determined he slipped out of his assigned room even though he was not authorized to leave the property. Additional charges are expected.
