An escaped inmate who walked away from a work release program in Cocoa was found and taken back into custody Wednesday, according to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.
A spokesperson with the sheriff’s office said around 9:35 a.m. that Gregory Mountcasel, 32, was being taken back to jail.
Mountcasel walked away from the “Bridges” work release program at 585 Camp Road at approximately 9:30 p.m. Tuesday evening after cutting off his electronic monitor, deputies said.
Deputies said Mountcasel was serving a two-year sentence for fleeing and eluding, and driving without a license.
They added he has prior convictions for grand theft and burglary, though he does not have a history of violence.
