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.
