August 14, 1991

WESTMINSTER — A work-release prisoner who escaped from the Carroll County Detention Center last week turned himself in late Monday morning, Carroll Sheriff John Brown said.

A warrant had been issued for Eugene Lester Mann, 38, of Finksburg last Tuesday after he failed to return to the detention center from his job at the William Fabrick Construction Co.

Brown said Mann told him he did not return to the detention center because he was upset about personal problems. He said he stayed with different friends during the week, Brown said.

He walked into the sheriff's department around 11:30 a.m. Monday, Brown said.

Mann was scheduled to be released from the detention center Sept. 12. He was incarcerated April 15 on charges of battery, driving while intoxicated and driving with a suspended license. Mann was charged with escape and was being held late yesterday without bail.
