A Glen Burnie man who failed to return to the Detention Center from his work-release job Friday night was found Saturday in a vacant apartment, county police said.

Police said they found John Junior Stewart, of the 100 block of Freetown Road, about 7:30 p.m. Saturday in an apartment in the 7800 block of Bruton Drive in Glen Burnie after someone called to report a burglary.

Stewart was serving a three-month term in the county detention center on trespassing charges when he left about 6 a.m. Friday for his work-release job at Relms Landscaping in the unit block of Hudson Street in Annapolis, police said.

They said they are not sure whether Stewart reported to his job, but he was scheduled to return to the detention center by 8 p.m. Friday. When he had not returned by shortly after midnight, a guard called police to report that he had escaped.

Police charged Stewart with escape, trespassing and fourth-degree burglary, and he was returned to the Detention Center about 6 a.m. Sunday.
