The Mesa County Sheriff's Office is investigating an escape from Community Corrections.

According to arrest reports, 32–year–old Scott Stivener is behind bars facing charges.

A Mesa County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman tells 11 News 32–year–old Scott Stivener was on work release, left Saturday morning and never returned. That's when deputies issued a warrant for his arrest.

Sources tell us Stivener went to his brother's house in the 2900 hundred block of North Avenue Saturday and his brother called the sheriff's office.

Minutes later deputies showed up and arrested Stivener.

According to jail records Stivener was serving a two year sentence in Community Correction for a 2007 trespassing conviction.

He was also arrested in October of last year on a probation violation.

A Mesa County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman said she did not have enough information to comment at this point, but say Community Corrections is not a lockdown facility and it usually serves criminals with less serious offenses.

Stivener is being held on a $20,000. He's scheduled to face a judge later this week.
