An escape of sorts… and then an arrest after an inmate in Community Corrections doesn't return.

The Sheriff's Office says 32-year-old Scott Stivener was on work release, left Sunday morning, and never returned.

That's when they issued a warrant for his arrest.

Sources say his brother turned him in.

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

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office did not have enough information to immediately comment but say community correction is not a lockdown facility and it usually serves criminals with less serious offenses.
Stivener is being held on a $20,000 dollar bond.

He's scheduled to face a judge later this week.

    How is it his news? The guy was serving a trespassing conviction. Who cares if he left the work release program. He's not a threat. This isn't news. Jeff
